Cesáreo Moreno, Chief Curator at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, presents a talk about 20th Century Mexican art and its development from local markets to museums around the world. The presentation will reveal artistic movements that emerged from the Mexican Revolution, along with the role of nationalism and the visual arts. He will explore the didactic murals, prints and the iconography that ultimately inspired the 1960s Chicano murals in the U.S. and led to public art on the streets of the Pilsen neighborhood. This virtual event will be hosted on the MAC Facebook page and is presented as a precursor to presenting leading up to the “Frida Kahlo: Timeless” exhibition coming summer 2021.
This is a free virtual event. Call 630-942-4000 for any questions.
