Pieces at an Exhibition: Music and Politics in 1930s Mexico

Check again later for room assignments.

The current Art Institute of Chicago exhibit of graphic art by the Mexican print collective Taller de Gráfica Popular in the 1930s–40s provides the context for this discussion of how Mexican composers of the era reacted to the social and cultural currents of the time. We will listen to little-known pieces by Cesar Chavez and Silvestre Revueltas in conjunction with images on display at the AIC.
