Talk & Tacos: Activism and Graphic Arts in Mexico with Josie Lopez

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Albuquerque Museum curator Josie Lopez presents an intimate discussion of graphic works in ¡Victoria! Selected Political Prints from México (1910-1960). The gallery walk-through will provide an opportunity to explore some of the prints produced by one of the most influential printmaking workshops in the world: El Taller de Gráfica Popular (TGP).

Founded in Mexico City in the 1930s by Leopoldo Méndez, Luís Arenal, and Pablo O’Higgins, the printmaking collective produced prints, posters, and illustrated publications seeking to advance progressive social change. Influenced by the works of José Guadalupe Posada, artists engaged with Mexican politics, the Mexican Revolution, and key historical figures. They also worked to advance an awareness of global issues including fascism, civil rights, war, poverty, and women’s rights. The TGP attracted artists from all over the world, including U.S. artists Elizabeth Catlett and Joseph Albers. The collective was known for creating works that were both visually stunning and socially compelling. Lopez will highlight these key themes while also contextualizing the historical narratives addressed in this collection of works.

Exhibition guest curated by Hecho a Mano.
