Recent Investigations at the Newly Discovered Maya Center of Tipan, Belize

Illustrated Lecture
Time: 4:30pm
Location: Robert A. Jones ’59 House, Conference Room

Dr. Christopher R. Andres, Adjunct Research Associate, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, University of Mississippi, Oxford

Since his discovery of a large, previously unreported Maya center in Belize in 2009, Dr. Andres and his students and colleagues from the University of Indiana have discovered that its architecture and monuments provide important insights into the turbulent period leading up to the so-called Maya “collapse,” around 900 C.E. Co-sponsored by the Rohatyn Center for International Affairs, Cook Commons, the Middlebury College Museum of Art, and the Friends of the Art Museum in conjunction with the exhibition Painted Metaphors: Pottery and Politics of the Ancient Maya.

Illustrated Talk by New York Artist Richard Dupont

Illustrated Lecture
Time: 4:30pm
Location: Mahaney Center for the Arts, Room 125

Richard Dupont, sculptor, installation artist, and printmaker

Sculptor, installation artist, and printmaker Richard Dupont (b. 1968) employs digital technology to produce drawings, prints, sculptures and installations that explore opportunities for self-surveillance and the perception of identity in an increasingly data-reliant world. Three of Dupont’s drawings and a polyurethane cast of his own head comprise an exhibition of his work on view at the museum from October 25 through December 11. Highlighting both the malleability and complexity of the information available to him, Dupont plays with the conception of self by distorting and altering the data—and therefore, his own image.
