Corridos Visuales: Tradition & Innovation in LatinX Printmaking Schmidt Center Gallery, February 12, 2021, through April 10, 2021
'Corridos Visuales' presents 10 LatinX artist printmakers with Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican and Latin American roots selected by FAU printmaking professor Joseph Velasquez. Before teaching at FAU, Velasquez operated a mobile printmaking project, traveling more than 200,000 miles across the United States, meeting numerous LatinX printmakers. More recent travels to Mexico and the Caribbean have introduced Velasquez to many more LatinX artists and their printmaking practices. The artists in 'Corridos Visuales' present and interpret diverse interests, struggles and themes experienced and celebrated by LatinX people. Works in the exhibition share common passions and expressions made tangible through diverse, innovative use of printmaking processes, wide ranging narrative voices, and bountiful Latin identity expressions.
