Llevando la Cultura: Conflicting Narratives in Mexican Art, on view at the David Winton Bell Gallery January 10 – February 11. The struggle to define what it means to be Mexican in an era of rapid change and instability profoundly affected Mexican art in the twentieth century. This period was marked by international and domestic pressure to modernize that deepened economic disparity and fueled the 30 year long Mexican Revolution. The conflicting narratives infused imagery in the public sphere, as artists increasingly favored cheap, publicly accessible mediums like printmaking, photography, and murals. 

Closing reception 5:30pm, Friday, February 9, 2018.

Malcolm Grear Designers created the exhibition identity, promotional materials, and installation graphics.
