Thursday, February 17, 2022

Gilman Auditorium at the Hood Museum of Art
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts, Exhibitions

Luis Vargas-Santiago (CDMX, 1982), Instituto de Investigaciones Estéticas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
Vargas-Santiago will explore how popular representations of the Mexican Revolution by agrarian leader Emiliano Zapata (1879–1919) have moved freely across national boundaries through a “visual diaspora” with political, social, and cultural repercussions. He will also reflect on the key role that American expatriates had in promoting and commodifying Mexico’s art and imageries internationally.

Please note: Per College policy, face coverings are required in the museum atrium and galleries. Dartmouth also requires that all who access campus buildings are fully vaccinated, if eligible. Click here to read Dartmouth's COVID-19 policies.
