Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985

LACMA's Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 is a groundbreaking exhibition and accompanying book about design dialogues between California and Mexico. Its four main themes—Spanish Colonial Inspiration, Pre-Columbian Revivals, Folk Art and Craft Traditions, and Modernism—explore how modern and anti-modern design movements defined both locales throughout the twentieth century.

LACMA's exhibit will feature the Día de los Muertos print from Self Help Graphics by artists Antonio Ibanez and Carlos Bueno. This print is dated back to 1973, and is believed to be one of the first Day of the Dead prints created.

Craft in America: BORDERS

Craft in America: BORDERS explores the profound relationships, both contemporary and historical, between Mexican and United States craft artists, through stories that confirm the idea that art is without borders. It is a pathway for creativity and the connections that make us human. BORDERS will feature Ofelia Esparza, Self Help Graphics and the Day of the Dead celebration.

BORDERS screening will take place at Self Help Graphics in September - come back in the next couple of weeks for the confirmed date.

Day of the Dead (1957)

Day of the Dead (1957), made by Ray and Charles Eames, will be shown at LACMA's Found in Translation. Sister Karen utilized this film as an educational tool to teach artists about Día de los Muertos.
