Opening reception: Thursday, June 24, 6:30-8:30 p.m.The New School Art Collection and Parsons’ Sheila C. Johnson Design Center are pleased to present the exhibition Re-Imagining Orozco in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery. With the collaboration of visiting Mexican-American artist Enrique Chagoya and the university-wide participation of New School students, Re-Imagining Orozco celebrates José Clemente Orozco's historic 1931 mural cycle A Call to Revolution and Table of Universal Brotherhood, which was commissioned by The New School for its new home on West 12th Street, designed by Bauhaus architect Joseph Urban. This collective, community-wide engagement is an opportunity to revisit the murals as a platform for a contemporary exploration of sociopolitical art practices. Re-Imagining Orozco features large-scale drawings created by Enrique Chagoya for the exhibition, as well as prints, video, installation, and mixed media works that respond to the mural by students from Parsons’ Design + Technology, Illustration, and Product Design departments and Eugene Lang College. There are also contributions from faculty and students from The New School for Drama, The New School for Social Research, and composer David Lopato, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Please visit the blog here.
