The main content | Summary

This lecture is designed to let us understand the work of contemporary Mexican women artists and how Mexico’s social and artistic world is enriched by its active presence. In addition, we hope to build a bridge of knowledge between Chinese and Mexican women artists.

At the beginning of the last century, there was a turning point in the history of Mexican art. After the revolution of 1917 was over and the birth of the New Mexico Republic, the field of art was dominated by men. All painters and wall painters tried to educate people in the current transformation. These wall painters include the famous Rivera, Sequeiras and Orlosco, creators of the famous Mexican painting school, which set a standard line for Mexican art. At this time, a thin, weak young woman appeared on the scene.

Fridakaroo was a communist and painter. She did not draw a wall, nor did she focus her research on historical or social issues, but instead replaced it with difficulties and pain in her life. Human and female genders are the main identities of her artistic creation. Frida died in 1954 and is recognized as a great artist and communist. She was not the only famous female artist of that era because there were other female photographers, dancers, writers, and actors who initiated a new movement that represented the equality of communist ideology, and in many fields Afterwards, women’s art opens the door.

Since then, we can say that Mexican women artists work in other areas of breaking stereotypes in addition to working in traditional fields. Through their grasp of the media and continuous practice, they created their own artistic language and gained international acclaim.
