Object of the Month: Our Lord, the One Who is Flayed

Join docent Jim Aubey in a conversation about this iconic work, Nuestro Señor El Desollado (Our Lord, The One Who is Flayed) by Paul Pletka. This painting explores the blending of Spanish Catholicism with Native traditional religious beliefs, as well as trends in contemporary art with more traditional forms of image-making. Executed in the form of a triptych featuring thirty human figures, it is Pletka's largest and most complex painting to date.
