NEWARK MUSEUM EXHIBITS CLOSE AUGUST 8, 2010

Indigenismo: Ancient Roots in Mexican Art
Exhibit closes Sunday, August 8, 2010

The Newark Museum marks the centennial celebration of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) with an exhibition of works from the Bank of America Collection Arts in our Communities Program.

Indigenismo (Indianism) was a cultural movement that arose after the Revolution spawned by artists and writers who studied and used indigenous imagery and concepts to express their social messages to the public, proudly including their ancient Mesoamerican past. Indigenismo was the impetus responsible for many of Mexico’s great works of art—whether painted on walls or printed on paper—and part of a legacy that continues up to the present.
