ASARO—Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca

Sunday, April 27 at 11:00am to 5:00pm

Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA) 1430 Johnson Lane, Eugene, OR, 97403

The Assembly of Revolutionary Artists of Oaxaca (ASARO—Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca) was born in the wake of the 2006 uprisings in Oaxaca, Mexico. This year marks the eighth anniversary of the collective’s commitment to engendering social change through art. Their studios, located in the heart of Oaxaca on the Calle Porfirio Díaz, are filled with prints—from heroic portraits of agrarian leader Emiliano Zapato to punk rock renditions of artist Frida Kahlo—that connect to the strong tradition of political art production in Mexico. The works on display were generously gifted by three university faculty members, Alice Evans (Center for the Study of Women in Society), Gabriela Martínez (School of Journalism and Communication/Center for the Study of Women in Society), and Lynn Stephen (Department of Anthropology/Center for Latino, Latina, and Latin American Studies) and are presented in conjunction with the launch of Stephen’s new book “We are the Face of Oaxaca: Testimony and Social Movements”, a chapter of which is dedicated to ASARO. The works also support Stephen’s winter term course “Race, Gender, and Political Economy in Latin America.”
