Latin American Artists Between the Wars: Kahlo, Rivera, Orozco, Siqueiros In-Person

Art historian Jeff Mishur presents on four Latin American artists active in the 1920s and 1930s, including Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, and Frida Kahlo.

This slide lecture examines the relationship these artists had with a 1920s cultural and educational reform movement in Mexico known as "Indigenismo" or "Mexicanidad." Promoted especially by José Vasconcelos, Minister of Education, this movement emphasized Mexico's folk traditions and precolumbian roots.

Mishur is an owner of Art Excursions, a company that provides private guiding in Chicago; lectures; and boutique art and culture tours in the United States. 

This event will be viewed on the screens in classrooms A and B.
