Taller de Gráfica Popular (The People’s Print Workshop) Exhibition
June 7 - August 2Free
Casa Azul of Greensboro and the African American Atelier join forces to present “Engraving Injustice”, in collaboration with General Consulate of Mexico in Raleigh. This is an Exhibition of Taller de Gráfica Popular works, part of an artistic movement in mid-20th Century Mexico. It is one of the most influential and progressive printmaking collectives of its time.
This exhibition contains works from the personal collection of Dr. Robert Healy. It features works by Posada, Nicolas Moreno, Leopoldo Mendez and Arturo García and Sergio Sanchez Santamaria, a contemporary artist working in the TGP tradition. Sanchez Santamaria’s work, though contemporary, is comparable with the best of them. It features a series of TGP prints on Afro-American and Afro-Mexican subjects from artists such as Elizabeth Catlett and her husband Francisco Mora. A set of six prints of “Famous African-Americans”, created in 1956 for a US magazine, illustrates famous African-Americans such as Crispus Attucks and Frederick Douglass.
Come enjoy amazing activities, discussions, and workshops throughout the Summer 2019!
