El Surrealismo en México: Histories, Reflections, Engagements Sunday, November 17, 2019 5:00 PM 6:30 PM San Francisco Art Institute, 800 Chestnut Street, San Francisco (Admission Free) A lecture with Dr. Arturo Dávila-Sánchez. Mexico contributed richly to the archives of Surrealism. Although Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera take a great deal of the spotlight, there were many other artists who contributed to the moment in Mexican art, culture, and politics in which surrealist currents played a vital role (not least, David Alfaro Siqueiros and José Clemente Orozco). Meanwhile, influential Mexican writers like Octavio Paz, José Revueltas, Elena Garro, Juan Rulfo, and many others noted surrealism’s influence on their own contributions to what became known as magical realism (a development they also traced back as far as the incomparable poetry of Sor Juana). We can even found the traces of Surrealism in contemporary Chaicanx art and writing and in Neobaroque poetry. Throughout the course of the last century, such influential figures as Leonora Carrington, André Breton, Luis Buñuel, Remedios Varo, and many others either passed through or made their home in Mexico City. In this afternoon’s lecture, Professor Dávila-Sánchez will explore the rich history of Mexican Surrealism and read some contemporary texts influenced by surrealism. Arturo Dávila-Sánchez is a poet, translator, writer, and educator. He is Chair of the Department of Modern Languages and Professor of Spanish and Mexican-Latin American Studies at Laney College, Oakland. He is poet laureate in Mexico and Spain where he was awarded three international prizes for the following collections: La ciudad dormida (National Prize “Sor Juana In?s de la Cruz,” Mexico, 1995); Catulinarias (International Prize “Antonio Machado,” Baeza, Spain, 1998); and, Poemas para ser leíos en el Metro (International Prize “Juan Ramón Jim?nez,” Huelva, Spain, 2003). He has recently published for the Mexican magazine nexos & El Cultural. Photo Caption Arturo Dávila-Sánchez courtesy of City Lights.
