Chicago Artists
Gabriel Villa, René H. Arceo and the Artists of Pilsen
Friday, March 13 to Saturday, April 25, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, March 13, 2009, 5-9 pm

 René Arceo at work, 2008

René Arceo at work, 2008

With this new body of work, Gabriel Villa explores several new directions,
a refocusing of subject matter on the human form and the introduction
of an idiosyncratic, psychological element that positions his portraits
beyond the traditional. René Arceo's work has been influenced
by an awareness of the populist tradition of Mexican printmaking
and by his regard for the work of Mexican artists such as Alfredo Zalce
and Leopoldo Mendez. It recalls the modernist movement in Mexico
and its dialogue with European traditions. Pilsen a predominately
Mexican neighborhood and its residents have built
a set of cultural institutions that far outpace many wealthier neighborhoods,
crowned by the excellent National Museum of Mexican Art
and many working artists.

Horns, Hooves, Wings, Fins and Tails
- Animal Imagery in the Permanent Collection

Over 100 objects from the Museum's Permanent Collection explore the depiction of animals
in Mexico from pre-Cuauhtémoc cultures and folklore to the contemporary issue of habitat loss.
Often symbolic, but more likely, objects of pure whimsy, these pieces are a part of a cross section
of the Permanent Collection. Animals appear most frequently in the Museum's arte popular (Folk art)
collection, but also turn up in prints, paintings, photographs, vintage calendars, textiles, and ancient
artifacts. This colorful, fun show perk up the winter blahs and help folks further appreciate
the fanciful, furry, feathered and sometimes four-footed friends with whom we share existence.


Exhibition (January 25 - June 8) in the Rubín & Paula Torres Center Gallery
