To revalue the contribution of artists from the generation of La Ruptura is one of the objectives of the Colloquium of the Virtual Center for Documentation and Information (CEVIDI) of Macay, which will take place on September 6 and 7 with the participation of prominent intellectuals and art critics.
The Colloquium includes lectures, panel discussions and the awarding of a poster contest about La Ruptura, which was organized by the Macay Cultural Foundation as part of the event.
Elba García Villarreal, director of the Macay Cultural Foundation, said that the Colloquium Cevidi 2018 will feature the theme “Precursors, spaces and moments of La Ruptura“. The objective is to revalue the contribution of the generation of La Ruptura and how it changed the country in the middle of the 20th century.
Generación de la Ruptura (Breakaway Generation) is the name given to a whole generation of Mexican plastic artists during the 1950s. The Generación de la Ruptura had influence on other arts in Mexico, such as literature, architecture, etc. The Ruptura artists were a diverse group, not united by a single artistic movement but only by the belief that “muralism” had run its course, and it was time for different modern artistic expressions.
The Colloquium will have three thematic axes:
- The entrance of abstract art in Mexico
- From independent spaces to the visibility of La Ruptura
- The celebration of the 50th anniversary of the appearance of the book “Nueve pintores mexicanos” by Juan García Ponce, critic of art of the generation of the Rupture.
During this event the participation of intellectuals, academics, researchers and students is expected.
Regarding the speakers, announced that will attend the event, some of them are: Daniel Garza Usabiaga, doctor in History and Art Theory and curator in chief of the University Museum of “El Chopo” in Mexico City, who will offer the conference “1965, 1968, 1970 “.
Pilar García, professor in Art Studies for the Ibero University and curator of the Artistic Collection of the University Museum of Contemporary Art of the UNAM with “New spaces and languages of Mexican art in the sixties”.
Elvia González Canto, PhD in Architecture and member of the International Documentation and Conservation Committee of the Modern Movement in Architecture with “The architecture and painting of Fernando García Ponce, expressions of the soul”.
Discussion table: “50 years of nine Mexican painters”, will be divided into two parts; and “Interdisciplinary Approaches to nine Mexican Painters and Art Criticism in Mexico”.
Admission to the event will be free and those who can not physically attend the Macay will be able to follow the transmission of the event on the Macay TV channel on YouTube and Radio Universidad on the Arte Conexión radio program.
Roger Metri Duarte, director of the Sedeculta, said that it is gratifying that the Colloquium can go from the traditional to the most current and travel without any generational problem.
Enrique Martín Briceño, director of the ESAY, whose students will take part in the event, praised the activity that contributes to the formation and development of young talent, and possibly encourages some of them to dedicate themselves to artistic research, something that is desperately needed in Mexico.
The opening of the Colloquium will be on September 6 at 10 AM. Free entrance.
