Dancing Between Worlds: Magical Realism in Contemporary Art
Karen Crews Hendon, Curatorial Advisor for the MAW Collection of Oaxaca will give a presentation on the concepts behind Magical Realism and how the international movement has expanded beyond the literary realm, bridging ancient principles with contemporary expressions in visual art. In tandem with the current exhibition, The MAW Collection of Contemporary Mexican Art, Hendon will discuss the diversity of symbols, archetypes, and allegories that generate cross-cultural influences, create global connections, and produce visual responses that catalyze social and artistic empowerment. The evening will include a participatory ceremonial experience, as the audience will engage in creating a collaborative medicine bundle offering for the prosperity of the museum and the arts community.
