Mexico’s Artistic Revolution
Friday, November 1, 2019   7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Saturday, November 2 2019   10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

One of the most dynamic chapters in the modern arts occurred in Mexico from 1910–1960. The 1910–1920 political revolution ushered in an artistic revolution reflecting its values and resulting in the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. A vibrant literary scene was dominated by Nellie Campobello, Juan Rulfo, Octavio Paz, and Carlos Fuentes. Visual arts ranged from the intensely political to the abstract and the surreal. Paintings were monumental in scale. While these new art forms served political goals, they also provided artists with a way to re-conceive modernism as a populist art form. Artists Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros expressed themselves on a grand scale, but there were also expressions of intimacy in the portraits of Frida Kahlo and in the pure abstractions of Rufino Tamayo.


Greenberg Among Friends: Mozart
Thursday, February 6, 2020   7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

We worship the great composers as gods, thanks to the magnificent musical gifts they have given us. But that same worship can put their all-too-human music at arm’s length by rendering it as something divine. This series will explore the lives, times, personalities and music of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms in an effort to understand the living, breathing people behind their music, people who were – and remain – utterly indivisible from their music. In this first in a new Humanities West series, Robert Greenberg lectures and Lino Rivera plays Mozart on piano.


Etruscan Italy: Life and Afterlife
Friday, February 28, 2020   7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Saturday, February 29 2020   10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

The Etruscans were major contributors to some of Western civilization’s greatest achievements in architecture, engineering, and art. A sophisticated and wealthy people living in central Italy between the 8th and 2nd centuries BCE, the Etruscans leave us much of their past through their material culture, namely, tombs, temples, habitation sites, and more. By the 7th century BCE the Etruscans had created a broad network of commercial and artistic trade routes throughout the Mediterranean and were avid importers of Greek and Near Eastern art. Their artistic legacy lives on in their tomb paintings, bronze and clay sculpture, vase paintings and gold jewelry. In fact, since their literature has not survived, it is from their material history that we learn about their fascinating culture.


Artistic Responses to Napoleon: Beethoven, Goya and Goethe
Friday, May 1, 2020   7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Saturday May 2, 2020   10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Hope and Change could have been Napoleon’s election campaign themes had he been required to submit his leadership to a vote. But reality set in quickly enough, as is revealed by artistic responses to Napoleonic times: Beethoven in music, Goya in art, and Goethe in literature. Beethoven’s disillusionment is legendary, as is his music inspired by the Emperor. Goya’s politically incendiary depictions of war, considered the tortured psychological visions of an isolated recluse, revealed his struggle to deal with a chaotic and rapidly changing world. German writers from Goethe to Kleist and Adele Schopenhauer wavered between admiration and horror, like Tolstoy, revealing the ambivalence of many writers and artists of the times.
