Whims and Absurdities is a playful look at MOLAA’s Permanent Collection. It will feature a selection of pieces from the collection by artists who employ humor, absurdity and the fantastic to tell personal, regional, and universal stories. The exhibition will be divided into four sections: Ancestral Connections investigates visual and conceptual links to the pre-Hispanic past; Myths and Mysticism explores works influenced by spirituality and superstition; Humor and Identity features both personal as well as national concerns; and Transcendent Landscapes will show expressive and dreamlike environments. Artists include Fernanda Brunet, Elsa Mora, Rodolfo Morales, Fernando de Szyzlo, and Rufino Tamayo, among others.
This exhibition has been curated by Gabriela Martínez, Curator of Education
