Art Talk: “Muralism”, “Indigenism” and Social Realism: Pride and Prejudice – BC


This month’s Art Talk will focus on the results and legacy of the muralismo and indigenismo movements that emerged in Mexico after the Revolucion Zapatista. What was the influence of these movements for the rest of Latin America? What were the advantages and disadvantages of this revolutionary attitude for artists, critics and the general public? Join us on June 17 from 6.30 p.m. to 8 p.m. for this intriguing lecture on the causes, developments and effects of these movements on the artistic and cultural map of Latin America during the first half of the 20th century. The Art Talk session is a fun interactive event where everyone is invited to give their opinion. It includes a 5-minute small-group activity where chaperones are paired up to discuss an issue related to the theme of the evening. VLACC holds an Art Talk on the 4th Thursday of each month. Join us to learn more about art and its social, political and economic context in Latin America.
