Cultural appropriation. Frank Lloyd Wright. Indigenous peoples. This piece has got it all.
My original pitch:
HED The Mayan Temples Frank Lloyd Wright Gave Over to Hollywood Villains
DEK A few L.A. exhibitions are unpacking The Mayans’ complicated relationship with the movies.
I've written about Frank Lloyd Wright before and gave the influence of Mayan architecture in his work the space of a single sentence. BUT. One of my PST ~ realizations ~ is the need to dismantle the horizontal dialogue between Europe and the United States as the central narrative of art history. Wright thought so too. He just went about it in such a naive way. Read about it at Artsy.
