"René Treviño: A New Codex"

Contemporary Mexican-American artist René Treviño will create an installation comprised of his own work alongside his personal selections from the Old Jail Art Center's Pre-Columbian collection. Utilizing extensive research of Mayan and other cultures' carvings, Treviño develops contemporary images and combines them with popular culture references. The installation will incorporate Treviño's large-scale works on paper along with smaller works on leather skins and short looped digital animations. Placing his own sculptural objects into the vitrines with objects from the museum's collection will further challenge visitors to see and seek relationships between the ancient and contemporary.
