Summary
"Inspired by the pre-Hispanic codices of Central America, the book...expandes in accordion folds to thirty-one feet...When the pages are fully extended the work becomes sculptural, a multilateral mural within the frame of book ends....Codex Espangliensis...is a reinterpretation of this original [pre-Hispanic] form through the contemporary concerns of Gomez-Pena, Chagoya and Rice who have created a structured narrative and layered iconographic system in order to examine...what the past has been and what the present is becoming. Canonizing tales of colonial greed and power with a visual and textual montage...."--Critical commentary by Jennifer González, page [2] of accompanying booklet of performance texts
