LEWIS DESOTO: RANSOM

January 7th – January 12th, 2011
Palm Springs Art Museum

Lewis deSoto’s exhibition project, Ransom, utilized the museum’s Mesoamerican collection, commissioned videos, and historical sculptural elements to create a multi-nuanced environment that presents the dynamic relationship between victor and vanquished.

The project referenced Hernando de Soto’s defeat of the Incan empire in Peru under Francisco Pizarro’s command.
