ART@LUNCH: ROBIN GREELEY, THE MEXICAN AVANT-GARDE: VISUALIZING RURALMODERNIZATION & STATE FORMATION

Wednesday, Oct. 28, 12:30 p.m., Bunting 110, Bunting Center, 1401 W. Mount Royal Ave.

During this talk, Robin Greeley, associate professor of art history and Latin American studies at University of Connecticut, examines the role of images in modern nation-state formation in rapidly modernizing developing countries. As her main example, she will focus on the construction of a powerful, state-sponsored "revolutionary nationalism" in the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920).
