In this seminar, curator Mary Schneider Enriquez will explore the topic through a range of works—from José-Guadalupe Posada’s broadsheets and the iconic, post-revolution images by muralists David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, and Diego Rivera, to the politically charged works of Leopoldo Méndez and the print collective Taller de Gráfica Popular.
