Luis Vargas-Santiago (CDMX, 1982), Instituto de Investigaciones Estéticas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
Vargas-Santiago will explore how popular representations of the Mexican Revolution by agrarian leader Emiliano Zapata (1879–1919) have moved freely across national boundaries through a “visual diaspora” with political, social, and cultural repercussions. He will also reflect on the key role that American expatriates had in promoting and commodifying Mexico’s art and imageries internationally.
