Traitor, Survivor, Icon: The Legacy of La Malinche examines the historical and cultural legacy of the Indigenous woman at the heart of the Spanish Conquest of Mexico (1519-1521). A controversial and enigmatic figure with a complicated life story, the woman known colloquially as Malinche played a central role in the major and minor transactions, negotiations, and conflicts between the Spanish and the Indigenous populations of Mexico. The Legacy of La Malinche establishes and examines her symbolic importance and the ways artists, scholars, activists, and everyday women have appropriated and used her as means of expression.

Traitor, Survivor, Icon: The Legacy of La Malinche is organized by the Denver Art Museum. The exhibition is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

 

Additional support is provided by the City of Albuquerque Department of Arts & Culture, the Albuquerque Museum Foundation, and from people like you.
