Dr. Marcela Guerrero: Vida Americana at the Whitney

05/05/2020 @ 5:30 PM

YLAN Webinar Recording

Wonderful talk with the Whitney Museum of American Art Assistant Curator, Dr. Marcela Guerrero, about the influence of Mexican artists on American art showcased by the exhibition Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925-1945.

Dr. Guerrero explained that the exhibition’s closing date will likely be extended into the Fall (it was previously set to run Feb-May 2020 in NYC). Dr. Guerrero also emphasized that the images shown during this talk are only a fraction of what’s on display at the museum. Many works on display either haven’t been seen in the U.S. or have not been seen in a very long time, so this exhibition really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Thank you to our wonderful Yale alumnae, Wendy Maldonado D’Amico ’93, Cristina Gonzalez ‘94, and Isabella Lores ’12, for leading the discussion and live Q&A, and to those behind the scenes (Mari Hinojosa’94).
