Una Tarde con The Great Tortilla Conspiracy at SFMOMA

Special Event to Celebrate Two Exhibitions: Diego Rivera’s America at SFMOMA and Emmy Lou Packard: Artist of Conscience at Richmond Art Center

Thursday, August 4, 3:30pm-7:30pm

SFMOMA, Howard Street Entrance

Join Bay Area political performance collective The Great Tortilla Conspiracy for an irreverent night of screen-printed quesadillas, communal snacking, and graphics inspired by Diego Rivera’s America!

To complement both Diego Rivera’s America at SFMOMA and Emmy Lou Packard: Artist of Conscience at Richmond Art Center, this four-hour event brings the unorthodox materials and mischievous humor of The Great Tortilla Conspiracy (GTC) to the museum. In an interactive performance reminiscent of Diego Rivera’s own demonstration at the 1940 Golden Gate International Exposition, GTC artists Jos Sances, Art Hazelwood, and Río Yañez will screen print graphics inspired by Rivera and Packard (Rivera’s principal assistant on Pan American Unity) onto tortillas with edible ink. After cooking them on a traditional comal, the collective will serve them up—with a side of playful conversation—to museum visitors.
