Join Clare for a fascinating morning on the cam;pus of the Claremont Colleges. We will begin our morning at the Williamson Gallery at Scripps College, where we will take a tour of a marvelous photography show that focuses on three generations of Mexican female photographers, their careers spanning 100 years. Sara Castrejon was one of the few female photographers who documented the Mexican Revolution. Graciela Iturbide is best known for her photos of the daily lives of Mexico's indigenous cultures, while Tatiana Parcero, a contemporary artist, splices images of her body with cosmological maps and Aztec codies. By bringing their work into conversation, we will get a rare opportunity to see how photography has been transformed over the past century in Mexico. We will then turn our attention to the historic mural of Orozco at Pomona College. Painted in 1930, Prometheus was the first mural painted by the "big three Mexican muralists" in the United States. For PST:LA/LA, the mural will be positioned within the context of contemporary artistic practice in Mexico, providing us with the rare opportunity to see a masterpiece of the 20th century through contemporary eyes.
devoted to the best of PST:LA/LA.
