Usually, tourists in Mexico see and hear only about the work of mural painters and mariachi bands. Travellers who wish to better understand this complex country will find this presentation useful, as University of Alberta Professor Betsy Boone offers a nuanced view of Mexican art through a presentation brimming with visual images. By way of introduction, MacEwan faculty member Marco Katz Montiel (English) will provide a selection of musical sounds that go beyond Cielito lindo.
Guest speaker: Dr. M. Elizabeth "Betsy" Boone lectures and publishes on 19th and early 20th century art in Western Europe and the Americas and is particularly interested in trans-national relations, the role of art in the development of national identity, and the politics of display. Regularly invited to lecture around the world, Betsy is also the author of exhibition catalogues and articles on such topics as the metaphor of travel in the work of Spanish-born Mexican surrealist Remedios Varo. She published Vistas de España: American Views of Art and Life in Spain, 1860-1914 with Yale University Press in 2007, and is currently finishing a book about Spain at world's fair and centennial celebrations in the U.S., Spain, France, Mexico, and South America.
