Views on Velasco: The Politics of Mexican National Landscape

12:00 pm - 01/12/2018

@ Nevada Museum of Art

160 W Liberty St
Reno NV  89501



Included with the price of admission / FREE for Members

Join Babelito (Emmanuel Ortega Ph.D.) and FavyFav (Justin Favela) from the podcast Latinos Who Lunch for a special lecture on one of Mexico’s most important 19th century painters: Jose Maria Velasco. Velasco’s landscapes have represented Mexico throughout the world.

In this talk, the dynamic Latinos Who Lunch duo will deconstruct the myth of the nation as it pertains to academic painting in the 19th and 20th centuries, and address the romanticism of Velasco’s landscapes, which Favela re-contextualizes in his own work, now on view in the exhibition "Unsettled."

Support for the Art Bite series comes from Nevada Arts Council and Nevada Humanities & the National Endowment for the Humanities.
