Second Thursday Reception: October 13 | 6 – 9 PM
On View: October 13 – January 28, 2017
Indigo Arts Gallery presents Mexicanismo: an exhibition reflecting an intentional expression of Mexican identity in art which came to its fore in the years following the Mexican Revolution.
A selection of prints and paintings of the last 30 years from the Indigo Arts’ collection, the exhibit testifies to the rich legacy of 20th century Mexican art. Mexicanismo illustrates the artistic movements unleashed by the Mexican Revolution and the advent of Mexican modernism over a century ago. While not immune to other tendencies in contemporary art of the last three decades, the artists shown here–many from the artistically fertile southern state of Oaxaca–have retained and developed the key characteristics of the period that established the Mexican School in art.
Featuring artists: Enrique Flores, Nicolas de Jesus, Eddie Martinez, Felipe Morales, Rodolfo Morales, Fernando Olivera, Carlomagno Pedro, Mario Romero, Shinzaburo Takeda, & more.
