Members Tour “Between Play and Grief: Selections from the Latino American Collection”
Between Play and Grief: Selections from the Latino American Collection features a survey of works from the MFAH collection of modern and contemporary Latin American and Latinx art. This 45-minute tour explores the exhibition and encourages visitors to discuss the art together.
See more than three dozen works of art acquired by the MFAH over the past 10 years. The selection spans six decades of artistic expression, from figures who were actively in dialogue with leading postwar artistic movements such as Nouveau Réalisme, Arte Povera, and Pop Art in the 1960s, to contemporary artists whose work speaks to their identities as both insiders and outsiders within an American experience.
The artists featured in the exhibition rely on parody and dark wit to express social and political realities. Between Play and Grief includes the work of Antonio Berni, Juan Carlos Distéfano, Luis Jiménez, César Augusto Martínez, Mondongo, Celia Alvárez Muñoz, Luis Felipe Noé, Marcos Raya, Vincent Valdez, and Jorge de la Vega, among others.
