Searching for Posada: Art and Revolutions

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts‎ presents Searching for Posada: Art and Revolutions

For the first time, the fascinating story of Mexico’s famed artist-printer José Guadalupe Posada is revealed.

Frida Kahlo surrounded her apartment with his art to help keep her sanity while living in New York. Her husband, famed muralist Diego Rivera described his art as: “so great that perhaps one day his name will be forgotten!”

From his work over 1– years ago springs an unbelievable sphere of influence and inspiration touching and connecting events like the Mexican Revolution, artists fighting the Nazis and Fascim, Lucha Libre, the Cuban Revolution, the Grateful Dead, Day of the Dead, Chicano/a art and images of today’s social movements.

  • Directed by Victor Mancilla, Executive Producers Jim Nikas & Maryanne Brady, Piano Music by Natasha Marin.
