Re-imagining Orozco

Re-imagining Orozco
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery
June 25 – September 12, 2010

Opening reception: 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. With the collaboration of Mexican-American artist Enrique Chagoya and the university-wide participation of New School students and faculty, Re-Imagining Orozco celebrates José Clemente Orozco's historic 1931 mural cycle A Call to Revolution and Table of Universal Brotherhood. This collective, community-wide engagement is an opportunity to revisit the murals as a platform for a contemporary exploration of socio-political art making practices.

Re-Imagining Orozco
features large-scale drawings by Chagoya, created for the exhibition, as well as prints, video, and mixed media works that respond to the mural created by students from Parsons’ Design and Technology, Illustration, and Product Design programs and Eugene Lang College. Additional contributions were made by The New School for Jazz faculty member and composer David Lopato as well as other members of the faculty from The New School for Drama, and The New School for Social Research.
