On November 17, 2022, at 6:00 PM (ET), multimedia artist Cecile Chong will discuss her stop-motion animation video entitled “Conversations in Blue-and-White.” Ms. Chong’s video documents the origin and production of Talavera Poblana, or tin-glazed pottery produced in and around Puebla, Mexico. Ms. Chong will discuss how some elements of this pottery style that first arose in China were disseminated through trade and commerce through the Middle East, Europe and on to Mexico. (An example of Blue-and-White Talavera Poblana pottery is shown below.)
The presentation is offered through The Hispanic Museum and Library and is part of their Virtual Seminars with Artists series. A link to the presentation is here.
