JOSE GUADALUPE POSADA: At Albuquerque Museum December 19, 2020 through May 23, 2021

Exhibition Dates: December 19, 2020–May 23, 2021


The exhibition recognizes Posada’s cultural contributions, which reflect the spirit of Mexican identity in his time and ours and imparts a universal perspective extending well beyond the borders of his native Mexico. 

Posada’s art lampooned politicians, recorded vivid images of the Mexican Revolution, inspired Mexico's famed Taller Grafica Popular to use art for social causes, helped the Cuban Revolution succeed, adorned adorned concert tickets for the Grateful Dead and today leaps to life annually as the skeletal images seen during Day of the Dead, so popular now there is even a Disney and Pixar film, Coco, that celebrates the holiday. Yet Posada’s influence is rarely associated with his name, his true story virtually unknown.



Decades after his death, art historians and artists continue to explore and discover Posada’s cultural contributions, reflecting not only the spirit of Mexican identity in his time and ours but imparting a universal perspective extending well beyond the borders of his native Mexico.

The exhibition was organized by the Catalina Island Museum www.catalinamuseum.org, in association with the Posada Art Foundation, www.posada-art-foundation.com, and Landau Traveling Exhibitions, ww.a-r-t.com/posada/
