Searching for Posada: Art and Revolutions (Film)
October 23, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us and executive producer Jim Nikas as we screen Searching for Posada: Art and Revolutions, a new documentary that reveals, for the first time, the amazing story of Mexico’s famed artist-printer José Guadalupe Posada and his main publisher Antonio Vanegas Arroyo. From their work over 100 years ago springs an unbelievable sphere of influence and inspiration touching and connecting events like the Mexican Revolution, artists fighting Nazis and Fascism, Lucha Libre, the Cuban Revolution, the Grateful Dead, Day of the Dead and the art of today’s social movements.
The film’s executive producer, Jim Nikas, will be at the screening providing commentary. The film will be screened in the Richmond Art Center’s painting studio.
