Blanton Exhibitions Showcase Latin American and Chicanx Art

  • Aug 31, 2021

This autumn, The Blanton Museum of Art presents two major exhibitions that highlight the museum’s rich collections of Latin American, Latinx, and Chicanx art: “Pop Crítico/Political Pop: Expressive Figuration in the Americas, 1960s–1980s” and “Border Vision: Luis Jiménez's Southwest.”  

“Pop Crítico/Political Pop puts Latin American art at center stage, highlighting the interplay of artistic themes and techniques, while Border Vision showcases the pioneering work of Luis Jiménez, a UT Distinguished Alumnus, in an exploration of topics that are indelible to life in Texas,” said Blanton director Simone Wicha. “We hope the stories told through these exhibitions will resonate with our local communities and inspire visitors from all over.”  

The exhibitions open on Halloween, October 31, and run through Jan. 16, 2022. Read the full article from The Blanton Museum of Art
