Faith and Fortune: Curator's Talk

Four painted, wooden sculptures are arranged in a straight line. They are four human figures shown from the waist up. At left is a skeleton, next is a red devilish figure in chains and flames, second is a bare-chested man with fingers clasped in a begging pose, and finally, an angelic figure, in sumptuous clothing, with hands together in a prayer pose.

Attributed to Manuel Chili, called Capiscara (Ecuador, ca. 1723 – Quito, Ecuador, 1796), The Four Fates of Man: Death, Hell, Purgatory, Heaven. New York, The Hispanic Society of America.

Faith and Fortune: Curator's Talk

Saturday, June 11, 2 pm
Baillie Court, Art Gallery of Ontario
Faith and Fortune Curator's Talk

Join curators Adam Harris Levine and Tahnee Pantig and interpretive planner Gillian McIntyre for a conversation about Faith and Fortune: Art Across the Global Spanish Empire.

Tahnee Ann Macabali Pantig is an artist and designer born and raised in Toronto and currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Her creative practice is informed by her cultural upbringing and her family’s migration story from the Philippines. Tahnee's practice is medium agnostic, producing work that is reflective of her experience and her community's.

Prior to becoming Assistant Curator of European Art in 2020, Adam Harris Levine held various curatorial roles at the AGO and conducted extensive work with the Thomson Collection of European Art. He is currently finalizing his doctoral dissertation at Columbia University, where he has also taught extensively. Levine’s area of specialty is medieval and renaissance sculpture and decorative arts.
