The Mexican Graphic Tradition: Printmaking and the Political

April 1 - June 8, 2022

Since the late 19th century, artists in Mexico have used printmaking as a tool for disseminating news, sharing political views and celebrating Mexico’s national culture. Throughout the 20th century, Mexico’s printmakers synthesized text and images in prints that documented the events of the Mexican Revolution, promoted socialist ideals (including anti-imperialism), and, during World War II, warned Mexico’s citizens of the dangers of fascism. In other prints, artists honored Mexico’s cultural traditions, from Day of the Dead to folk dances. Inexpensive to make, reproduce and distribute, prints in Mexico have been a popular means for trying to shape public opinion.
