Taking william cordova’s exhibition ankaylli: spatial and ideological terrain at Marfa Contemporary as a point of departure, this book highlights the way the artist (who was born in Lima and is based in Miami) layers referents and histories across cultures. Bringing together a constellation of cordova’s artworks in a wide variety of mediums—sculptures, collages, Polaroids, a video, objects around town, a free newspaper, and a website—in which Pre-Columbian traditions, modern art and architecture, and spiritualism overlap, the exhibition stages these objects in the fitting home of Marfa, a town equally known for Native American history, Minimalism, and stargazing.
