Maya Exhibition at the ROM (NOV 19)

The exhibition “Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World” premieres at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in the Garfield Weston Exhibition Hall on Saturday November 19, 2011, and will run until April 9, 2012. The exhibition will feature 250 objects, including sculptures, ceramics, and masks related to Maya temples and palaces, many of which date from the Maya Classic Period (250 to 900 AD).
Some of the pieces included in the show have never been seen before in Canada.
The exhibition assembles collections from a number of museums including Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and its regional museums, the ROM, and institutions from Europe (the British Museum) and North America (the Princeton University Art Museum).
Aquí se podrá conocer más acerca del mundo maya, sus tradiciones, sus palacios, rituales y creencias, así como su visión del tiempo plasmado en el calendario maya.
This exhibition offers the public a chance to discover more about the Maya world: their traditions, palaces, rituals and beliefs, as well as their understanding of time as expressed through the Maya calendar.
Canadian curators Justin Jennings and Jean-Luc Pilon worked with Mexican curators Martha Cuevas and Roberto López to prepare the exhibition.
Following its run in Toronto, the show will be presented at the Canadian Museum of Civilization (CMC) in Ottawa from May 18 to October 28, 2012, thanks to the collaborative efforts of the ROM, the CMC, the INAH and Mexico’s National Council for Culture and the Arts (CONACULTA).
