About this Event:
"POSADA: The Godfather of Latin American Printmaking"
José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913) was a Mexican Printmaker and illustrator known for his satirical and socio-political prints and cartoons. His more critical work shows us the social injustices and inequality during the Porfiriato (1876-1911) but also he illustrated with mastery the spirit and everyday life of the Mexican People. One of his well-known satirical prints is “La Calavera Garbancera or La Catrina”, a print that has become an icon during the celebration of el Día de Muertos / Day of the Dead.
In this presentation Barberena will be talking about Posada’s legacy and how his social-political work has influenced artists in Mexico and Latin America until this day.
