Also included were several works not previously reconstructed: a Michio Ito suite as taught by Takeo Furusho; Lester Horton's Dedications in Time: To Jose Clemente Orozco; Antenna Bird, a whimsical solo choreographed by Eve Gentry; and Evocation by Carmelita Maracci, whose mingling of ballet and Spanish dance techniques is little documented.
what's upTwo headline contemporary art exhibitions will also be kept open for viewing: "Mexico: Fantastic Identity, 20th Century Masterpieces" from the FEMSA Collection featuring the works of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and other Latin American masters; and "Journey Through Space: The Visual Odyssey" of Fernando Zobel.
Also on view were recent photos focusing on the often jarring juxtapositions between Ganahl's highbrow subjects and the visual aids or backdrops that become the "sets" for their "performances": Griselda Pollock lecturing under a projection of Marilyn Monroe and Jackson Pollock; a tableau of graying white males (Eric Hobsbawm, Carl Schorske, David Montgomery, and Ira Katznelson) pondering "The Cold War and the University, at the New School," under a Jose Clemente Orozco mural of Latin American peasants.
The rest of the year, you can still get your fill of mariachi music in the city's many plazas, including the Plaza Tapatia, where you can also admire the murals of Guadalajara's own Jose Clemente Orozco. Those who want to shop should visit Tlaquepaque, where boutiques are filled with quality ceramics, glassware, and other handicrafts from Jalisco and throughout Mexico.
