On view through March 12, 2023

Carlomagno Pedro Martínez is a Mexican artist from San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca, Mexico, who specializes in “barro negro” or black clay ceramics. Martínez was trained by his parents in the Zapotec pottery tradition, and began formal artistic training at the age of 18. Martínez draws his inspiration from the cultural wealth he observes within daily life in Mexico, as well as the history of pre-colonial Mexico.
