Manton Foundation Annual Orozco Lecture
23 May, Thursday, 4:00–5:00 pm
“José Clemente Orozco and the Epic of ‘Greater America’”
Mary Coffey, Associate Professor of Art History, Dartmouth
Professor Coffey will situate José Clemente Orozco’s Epic of American Civilization (1932–34) at Dartmouth within debates over the American epic in the 1930s. In particular, she will demonstrate how Orozco deliberately counters the popularization of Manifest Destiny ideology through the structure and subject matter of his mural. Her talk will not only resituate Mexican muralism within US American debates over history and identity but also suggest the many ways Orozco’s Epic speaks to our contemporary political moment and the radical politics of Latinidad.
