Independent Expressions considered the diverse and innovative artistic production of Spanish and Mexican artists during the baroque and modern periods. The works exhibited here demonstrate several aspects of the history of Spanish and Mexican culture, and some of the different ways in which artists have chosen to express themselves and comment on their times. The artists include Joan Miró, Julio Gonzalez, José Clemente Orozco, Carlos Mérida, Esteban Vicente, and Angel Ferrant.
Curator: Stephanie D’Alessandro, graduate curatorial intern, with the help of Professor Earl Rosenthal in the Department of Art History
The exhibition was funded in part by the Illinois Arts Council.
