Mexican Art, Science, and Revolution in the Binational 1920s and 1930s
Featured Speaker: Ignacio Sánchez Prado, Ph.D., Professor of Spanish, Latin American Studies, and Film and Media Studies; Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Latin American Studies Program; Jarvis Thurston and Mona Van Duyn Professor in Humanities, Washington University in St. Louis
Inspired by the Flores Mexicanas exhibit, Washington University Arts and Sciences professor, Ignacio M. Sánchez Prado, PhD, discusses Mexican revolutionary art and science as a system of knowledge in which the nation, awoken by the uprisings of the 1910s, sought to learn about itself and to present this knowledge abroad; and he shows how the process of nationalization of arts and sciences played an essential role in the modernization of Mexico.
Mexican Art, Science, and Revolution in the Binational 1920s and 1930s is presented in conjunction with the Missouri History Museum exhibition, Flores Mexicanas: A Lindbergh Love Story,
