Please join the FA2D department for an incredible lecture and reception, hosted by Massachusetts College of Art and Design, in conjunction with the Clark Art Institute on Thursday, September 22 at 6:30 PM at the DMC Lecture Hall.

 

Anne Leonard, the Clark Museum's Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, will talk about the current exhibition being held there: José Guadalupe Posada: Symbols, Skeletons, and Satire, which will be on display until October 10, 2022.

 

Posada is the foremost caricaturist and graphic artist of his native Mexico, best known for his sheets of calaveras (skeletons), which figured in popular rituals around the Day of the Dead, but were also adapted into satires of political figures and other individuals.

 

Our interest in organizing this public lecture and event is, first and foremost, to benefit our community with the familiarization and understanding of one of the most relevant and provocative Latin American artists of all times. Posada's work is rooted in a national identity, yet transcends Mexico’s boundaries, as it examines human nature, and its relationship to death from a place of joy and celebration (of life itself).
