Después de la turbulencia de la revolución en México, se estableció una nueva relación entre el arte y el público, dando lugar a un arte que hablaba directamente a la gente sobre la justicia social y el potencial del activismo. Esta sesión explorará el profundo impacto que este modelo tuvo en los artistas africano-americanos en los Estados Unidos, inspirándolos a crear narrativas épicas sobre la historia estadounidense y la vida cotidiana y a usar su arte para protestar contra las injusticias económicas, sociales y raciales.

Ruth Asawa, Untitled (SF.045c, Potato print branches, purple/blue), 1951–52.

————

“An artist is an ordinary person,” Ruth Asawa once remarked, “who can take ordinary things and make them special.”

Here, Asawa transforms the most basic of pantry items—a potato—into a printing matrix. Working out of her San Francisco home, Asawa sliced one of these kitchen staples in half and carved a simple drawing into its interior. Alternately applying blue and purple ink, she stamped the potato onto paper to create collage-like layers made up of a single motif.

This print is on view now in Nothing Is So Humble: Prints from Everyday Objects.
