Heading to Mexico City…super excited and looking forward to se down time…and the opportunity to work Arturo Negrete at 75 Grados next weekend on some new prints along with Melanie Cervantes.
I only did two of these prints on amate paper. I really like how they look. Note to self : bring back a suitcase full of amate paper from mexico. #tallercocina #kitchenprinting #dignidadrebelde
In the United States, apart from in California and the Southwest, many museums and art professionals until relatively recently tended to isolate or ignore Mexico’s contributions to global movements such as Modernism or Conceptual and performance art. Similarly, in Mexico, U.S. Chicano art of the 1960s and ’70s generally has been regarded as a weird mutation, a foreign fiber that didn’t belong in the tricolored bandera of Mexico’s nationalistic art-historical narrative.
