Beyond the Day of the Dead: José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913) as a Revolutionary Artist [Virtual]
1:15 pm - 2:35 pm
Posada’s dramatic visual language struck a deep chord in the Mexican popular consciousness during a time of revolution and has inspired generations of artists and printmakers, even influencing Hollywood films like Coco (2017). This presentation explores the indigenous Mexican origins of Posada’s art of social satire and what makes his art so engaging.
