The exhibition displays works of three Mexican artists, who belong to three different ages and have experienced various Mexican historic moments.
Being the representative for contemporary part of this exhibition, Brenda Franco displays series of works Walking Blind. Enlightened by the never-ending movements in the metropolis, she shows people’s daily track route in Mexico and Shanghai in an abstract way. Brenda gets her inspiration from delicate figure paintings and outlines those seemingly blind walking prints left behind by people using native Chinese material such as ink and xuan paper .
Versatile artist, Daniel Nierman, known as architect, photographer and graphic artist, brings a series of samples of poster and advertisement design which reveals the development of graphic designing before digital media came into use.
The third part is The Death Is Allowed by Jose Guadalupe Posada, famous modern Mexican artist. The engraving exhibition displays his woodcut and comic works on the theme of Revolucion Mexicana, reflecting Mexican once turbulent history and Mexican people’s optimism.
Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art has long been dedicated to promoting sino-foreign cultural exchange with art.
