Mexic-Arte Museum presents La Huella Magistral: Homage to Master Printmakers. On view from January 25 through June 3, 2019, the exhibition spotlights prints in Consejo Gráfico’s third Portfolio Exchange. Founded in 2000, Consejo Gráfico is an independent group of printmaking workshops formed to advance the legacy and viability of Latinx printmaking in the United States.
La Huella Magistral: Homage to Master Printmakers features works from 19 printmakers, each contributing an individual print to the limited edition portfolio. Each artist pays tribute to a master printmaker who mentored, taught, or inspired them and contributed artwork in their mentor’s preferred medium or recognizable style. Printmakers explore shared social justice issues including the defense of poor or oppressed peoples, a commitment to public education, and solidarity with workers.
Mexic-Arte Museum expands on the themes explored in the portfolio by incorporating prints from the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Works from master printmakers Ernesto De Soto, Sam Coronado, Richard Duardo, and Arturo Negrete provide a more comprehensive look into the printmaking tradition while calling attention to the tradition’s far-reaching impact.
Featured Printmakers: René H. Arceo, Eliezer Berrios, Kay Brown, Pepe Coronado, Sam Coronado, Marcos Dimas, Paul del Bosque, Ernesto De Soto, Richard Duardo, Sandra C. Fernández, Juan R. Fuentes, Luanda Lozano, Poli Marichal, Jaime Montiel, Malaquias Montoya, Arturo Negrete, Betty Perez Cole, Ramiro Rodríguez, Marianne Sadowski, Joseph Segura, Francesco Siqueiros, Ricardo Xavier Serment, Nitza Tufiño
