This week brings, among other things, a zip tour of the dibujos divinos show led by Curator Christian Gerstheimer at El Paso Museum of Art this Wednesday at 12:15.
The next evening brings a Dr. Lydia Klich from Hunter College in New York, who will share her expertise on the important, if short-lived, movement “estridentismo” which was founded in Mexico in the 20’s, and included writers, visual artists and others who, from a center in Xalapa, tried to create revolutionary forms of art focused, if I have this correctly, on personal interpretations of reality rather than simply “copying” observed reality. The lecture will be at 6 pm.
Thursday night is also the opening of the UTEP student art show at the Rubin Center.
I also want to give a link to a relatively new (at least for me) on-line publication focused on art on the border. It can be found at artmagazineelpaso.com.-david sokolec
