Mexico: Prints and Revolution, 1910–45

June 5, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Free

Continuing the free Art Study Center Seminar from Home series.

In the early 20th century, Mexican artists embraced printmaking as a means of reaching a broader audience, creating works that expressed the sociopolitical concerns central to the nation’s 1910–20 revolution and its aftermath. In this seminar, curator Mary Schneider Enriquez will explore the topic through a range of works—from José-Guadalupe Posada’s broadsheets and the iconic, post-revolution images by muralists David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, and Diego Rivera, to the politically charged works of Leopoldo Méndez and the print collective Taller de Gráfica Popular.

Mary Schneider Enriquez, Houghton Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art
