Join curators Tamara H. Schenkenberg and Stephanie Weissberg for an in-depth look at two fascinating artists through guided tour of the fall exhibitions: Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work and Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico. Focusing on Ruth Asawa’s (1926-2013) ceaseless experimentation with wire, Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work presents nearly sixty sculptures and more than twenty drawings, paintings, prints, and collages to shed light on her evolving artistic vision which she achieved with a stunning deftness of hand and economy of means. Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico presents nearly fifty photographs by Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903-93), who played a critical role in Mexico’s modernist wave and brought to life an era of profound transformation through her photography practice.
