CARSON—Exhibit: Legend and Legacy: José Guadalupe Posada and Contemporary Latinx Art
October 2, 2019 – December 13, 2019
CARSON—Visit the College of Arts and Humanities at California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) for art exhibition Legend and Legacy: José Guadalupe Posada and Contemporary Latinx Art. The exhibit will run October 2 through December 13, 2019 in CSUDH’s University Art Gallery.
This multimedia exhibit includes a series of public programs tracing the influence of Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada (1852–1913) on contemporary Latinx artists. Known for his animated skeleton figures—or calaveras—that have become a symbol of Day of the Dead observances, Posada chronicled and satirized his society in street art that appealed to the public during the reign of dictator Porfirio Díaz.
