Olson Visual creates stunning murals for Pacific Standard Time’s Another Promised Land: Anita Brenner’s Mexico
Another Promised Land: Anita Brenner’s Mexico is on view from September 14th to February 25th. The show focuses on the work and life of a Mexican-born journalist, art historian, and anthropologist of Latvian Jewish descent. She researched on the Mexican Renaissance of the 20s and was one of the most notable figures to introduce Mexican culture to Americans.
She was a child of Jewish immigrants in Mexico who immigrated to the U.S. Brenner felt like an outsider which informed her work later on. She was a cultural trailblazer that fought against prejudice as both Jewish and Mexican-American. Her published articles, books, and poetry painted a favorable image of Mexico for Americans.
The exhibition has more then one hundred and fifty objects on display. These include artworks by her close friends including: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Edward Weston, and José Clemente. As part of the Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, it creates a dialogue of Latin American art and culture here in Los Angeles. Grants were provided by the Getty Foundation.
Olson Visual created numerous stunning murals for the exhibition. They are quite large-scale and were installed seamlessly throughout the space. Check out these images and don’t forget to see the show!
