Mexican Modernism in Context Session #3

Mexican Modernism in Context Session #3: Not Just Frida: The Women of Mexican Modernism

An era regarded as a renaissance in Mexican art, Mexican Modernism was shaped by not just the grandeur of politically charged murals by los Tres Grandes or the deeply reflective self-portraits by the now globally-known Frida Kahlo, but a series of women artists who challenged the existing narratives and styles, each forging their own path through representations of country, psyche, culture, and womanhood. In this course session, explore the diversity of works by María Izquierdo, Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington, Lola Alvarez Bravo, and Frida, of course. 
Presented by Tariana Naves-Nieves, Director, Cultural Affairs, Denver Arts & Venues, Latin American Art Specialist and former Curator of Latin American Art for the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Museo de las Americas, a series of private art collections, and Curatorial Associate for the Denver Art Museum.

Mexican Modernism in Context Session #4

Mexican Modernism in Context Session #4: Chicano/a Muralism of Colorado 

At the peak of the Civil Rights Movement, Chicano/a artists sought to instill a sense of cultural pride in their neighborhoods throughout Colorado. Serving as cultural place makers, artists began to paint murals to define safe spaces in their communities after years of displacement and cultural abasement. In this fourth and final course session, discover how the Mexican Mural Movement inspired young activists/artists to use murals to describe with bold, vibrant imagery their sense of identity, family, and community. Discover the distinct Chicano/a mural aesthetic that developed to describe complex narratives to symbolize their heritage and ancestral roots in Colorado. 
Presented by Lucha Martínez de Luna, Director of Chicano/a Murals of Colorado Project, Curator of Latino Heritage at History Colorado, and Director of the O'na Tök Archaeological Project, Chiapas, Mexico.
