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.
