In the 1400s, the Incas began a century-long campaign to conquer much of the central Andes Mountains. One thing that made them so successful was their distinctive, imperial artistic style. Join Andrew J. Hamilton, associate curator of arts of the Americas, and learn how an impressive Chuquibamba-style textile from Peru’s southern coast expresses both Inca and pre-Inca artistic traditions.
