Admission is free. Separate reservations are required for each day of the symposium.

This two-day symposium focuses on the visual representation of Peru from the colonial period through the nineteenth century. Along with the exhibition it accompanies, the symposium is the culmination of a project to study, publish, and exhibit two illuminated chronicles of the history of Peru written by the Spanish Mercedarian friar Martín de Murúa, and illustrated by at least two artists, including the native Peruvian Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala.

The exhibition, The Marvel and Measure of Peru, organized by Barbara Anderson of the Getty Research Institute with Emily Engel of the University of California, Santa Barbara, is open from July 8 to October 19, 2008, in the Getty Research Institute Exhibition Gallery.
