MEX Collects: Recent Gifts & Acquisitions
Opens October 10, 2014 through January 18, 2015
I’m very proud to be part of this exhibition; The Mexican Museum has acquired my “Matt Gonzalez for Mayor of San Francisco” poster for it’s collection, and it is on view from October 10, 2014 to January 18, 2015.
The Mexican Museum, the premier West Coast museum of Mexican, Mexican-American, Chicano, Latin American and Latino art, culture and heritage, announces an exhibition entitled MEX Collects: Recent Gifts & Acquisitions, which will feature a dramatic selection of over 30 recent pieces recently gifted to The Mexican Museum.
The exhibition will run from Oct. 10, 2104 – Jan. 18, 2015. The Museum is located at Fort Mason Center, Building D in San Francisco. It is open Wednesday through Sunday, from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
“Each of these new pieces enhances on the tremendous breadth and diversity of The Mexican Museum’s collections,” said David de la Torre, Museum Director and exhibition organizer. “We are deeply grateful for the generosity and support of the individuals who have expanded Museum collections with significant art treasures that span over two millennia.”
About The Mexican Museum: Founded by San Francisco artist Peter Rodriguez in 1975 in the heart of the Mission District, The Mexican Museum is located at Fort Mason Center, is the realization of a vision to exhibit the aesthetic expression of the Mexican and Mexican American people. Today, the museum’s vision has expanded to reflect the evolving scope of the Mexican, Chicano and Latino experience – including art, culture, history and heritage. In 2012, The Mexican Museum became an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the nation’s largest museum network. The museum currently has a permanent collection of more than 15,500 objects reflecting Pre-Hispanic, Colonial, Popular, Modern and Contemporary Mexican, Mexican-American, Latin American, Latino, and Chicano art.
Hi-Fructose art magazine is on the stands with vol. 33. I’m very proud to announce that I have an 8 page, richly illustrated exposé in the new issue. Many thanks Hi-Fructose!
Hi-Fructose is a quarterly print art magazine, founded by artists, Attaboy and Annie Owens in 2005. Hi-Fructose focuses squarely on the art which transcends genre and trend, assuring readers thorough coverage and content that is informative and original. Hi-Fructose showcases an amalgamation of new contemporary, emerging as well distinguished artists, with a spotlight on awe inspiring spectacles from round the world.
The magazine’s thirty-third volume also includes a major feature on the late H.R. Giger with a memoriam by Clive Barker, a major feature on visionary painter/designer Syd Mead, the the exploded view world of T.Wei, Ellen Jewett’s intricate animal sculptures, Japanese artist Ai Yamaguchi’s Superflat paintings on rounded forms, Canadian Laurence Vallières’ cardboard assemblages, and German painter Heiko Müller’s disconcerting look at the balance between man and nature. Cover artist Kazuki Takamatsu, whose work they present in this issue’s Special Insert, uses modern 3-D technology to “sculpt” his scenes before creating his large paintings with layer upon layer of gouache. Corinne Botz captures truly haunting moments found in the game changing crime scene dioramas of Frances Glessner. Master poster artist Chuck Sperry’s dazzling approach to print making is undeniably alluring. Plus, Jerome and Joel-Peter Witkin’s new mono (or is that duo?) graph, and Skinner’s new activity book, all in one place.
Hi-Fructose is available at magazine stands, book stores, college shops, Blick stores, Chapters, every Barnes and Noble, Books A Million, comic shops, and better gallery and museum stores everywhere and shipping direct from our store.
