Yesterday I was lucky enough to visit the Casa de las Artes de San Agustin (CASA), located 17 km to the north of Oaxaca City. CASA is housed in an architecturally stunning building that once was home to a textile factory, but now hosts a rotating array of artistic exhibitions.
The current exhibition is called ‘Artists dialogue with Posada’ and includes dozens of tributes to the great Mexican folk artist José Guadalupe Posada, in homage to his passing 100 years ago. Posada is best known for his drawings of calaveras (skulls) and the iconic Catrina image that is now so closely associated with Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Mexico.
The quality of artwork on display was so amazing that I wanted to share some pics with a wider audience (apologies that I do not have the names of the artists to include). You can judge for yourself – enjoy!
