“La Revolución Mexicana: 100 Years Later marks the centennial of the end of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) with a spotlight on Michoacan printmaker Artemio Rodriguez. His portfolio of 18 linoleum block prints created in 2010 to mark the 100-year anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican Revolution is on view together for the first time at the McNay.
Complementing Rodriguez’s portfolio are prints from the McNay’s extensive collection of portraits of Zapata by Diego Rivera, Melanie Cervantes, Ignacio Aguirre, Sarah Jiménez, Francisco Mora, José Clemente Orozco, Luis “Teak” Rodriguez, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Some of the exhibition’s contemporary portraits of the revolutionary are new acquisitions on view for the first time, and are a testament to Zapata’s enduring legacy in the social, political, and cultural life of Mexico.
A video by Cecilia Rascón highlights the roles women played during the Mexican Revolution, and features one of the most famous photographs of women in this moment—Soladeras by Geronimo Hernandez.
La Revolución Mexicana: 100 Years Later is organized for the McNay Art Museum by Lyle W. Williams, Curator of Prints and Drawings. It is on view in the Charles Butt Paperworks Gallery through November 24, 2019.”
