 Mexican Art and Culture: Past and Present

ChloŽ Sayer

Mexico has a rich and varied cultural heritage. Before the Spanish Conquest of 1519, the great cities were peopled by muralists, sculptors in stone, ceramic artists, feather- and gold-workers, jewellers, weavers and painters of sacred books. In the 20th century, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera mixed pre-Conquest and European traditions and today folk-artists create splendid items reflecting their cultural past. ChloŽ will bring items from her collection to show us. 

Starts at 10.40, coffee from 10.00
