Art historian Adriana Zavala, author of the award-winning book Becoming Modern, Becoming Tradition: Women, Gender, and Representation in Mexican Art (2010), will explore visual images of womanhood produced in Mexico before, during, and after the Revolution of 1910. As a political, social, and cultural milestone, the Revolution inspired artists to reinvent the cultural nation. Dr. Zavala’s talk will consider this claim by exploring images of women in art produced by both female and male artists during the decades of Mexico’s revolutionary rebirth. Her talk will amplify the context for artist Alfredo Ramos Martínez's mural-sized allegory of womanhood, Flores Mexicanas (1915-29), on view at the DMA.
