Contemporary Art in Mexico

The visual arts in Mexico have a remarkable and very old tradition that begins hundreds and even thousands of years ago, and that continues without interruption to our very present time. This course will explore the contemporary art scene in Mexico based in a series of interviews, images, and analysis of the visual art work of some 40 contemporary painters and sculptors, engravers, and mixed media artists, stressing the combination of factors -artistic, historical, sociological, cultural, and philosophical- that have given rise, over time, to the sense of a very powerful and thriving art scene in Mexico.
