Dimensions of Form: Tamayo and Mixografia

Nov 21st • 10:00 am • Bowers Museum

The catalog for the Bowers’ Rufino Tamayo show describes subjects of the iconic Mexican Modernist painter, muralist, sculptor and innovative printmaker on display as “celestial bodies and serpent-gods,” his work immediately recognizable as deeply representative of Mesoamerican culture, history, and pride. In “Dimensions of Form: Tamayo and Mixografia” (through January) we see the artist’s embrace of a then-experimental process invented by innovative Mexico City printmakers in a series of 50 high-relief “three-dimensional” prints on paper. In videos, displays and lectures, the Bowers explores the technically wondrous collaborative imagining which made Tamayo’s artful practice real, in both figurative and surreal images of humans, dogs and more, alive in vivid dream worlds.
