HART378 Modern Mexican Art 3 cr.

This course is a general survey of the main developments of Modern Mexican art in its social, economic, and political contexts. It runs from the late eighteenth century founding of the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City to the major movements of the 1960s, including La Ruptura. This includes discussion of easel painting, mural painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, popular arts and cinema. The final lectures focus on art that offers a critique of Muralism and on Chicano art, which continues an ancient tradition of discourse between Mexico and North America. Particular attention is given to the Muralist movement and the works of Posada, Herran, Rivera, Siquieros, Orozco, Tamayo and Kahlo.
