I'm went to Oaxaca in July 2011 courtesy of the NEH to study the arrival of the Spanish from the indigenous point-of-view. I'm now plotting to return and continue researching GM corn and colonial architecture in 2013.

One of the exhibits that drew me to the Centro de las Artes de San Agustin last summer was of ceramist Gustavo Perez. His pieces are both traditional and experimental, utilitarian -- but not. He is represented in the United States by the Frank Lloyd Gallery in Santa Monica. My particular favorite is the wall hanging sculpture, but I loved the smushed pieces as well.
