Mexican Muralism: A Critical History

by

Mexican Muralism: A Critical History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this comprehensive collection of essays, three generations of international scholars examine Mexican muralism in its broad artistic and historical contexts, from its iconic figuresand#151;Diego Rivera, Josand#233; Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siquierosand#151;to their successors in Mexico, the United States, and across Latin America. These muralists conceived of their art as a political weapon in popular struggles over revolution and resistance, state modernization and civic participation, artistic freedom and cultural imperialism. The contributors to this volume show how these artistsand#8217; murals transcended borders to engage major issues raised by the many different forms of modernity that emerged throughout the Americas during the twentieth century.
