Puente Nuevo by Justin Favela

Amon Carter Museum of American Art

The museum asked up and coming contemporary artist Justin Favela to create an immersive installation exclusively for the Carter. Based in Las Vegas, Favela draws on his own Mexican and Guatemalan heritage to reinterpret art work from the past using massive amounts of cut tissue paper – the same material used to construct piñatas. Favela will cover the walls of our galleries with his own murals inspired by works in our collection, including nineteenth-century color lithographs of Mexico and will create a sculptural tissue paper tribute to the museum’s mobile Untitled (ca. 1942) by Alexander Calder. His work bridges past and present and creates connections across cultures, bringing dynamic color, energy and fun to the museum experience.
