Popular Painters and Other Visionaries

El Museo del Barrio announces Popular Painters and Other Visionaries, the museum's first online exhibition that examines the work of 30 artists from the Americas and the Caribbean.

Curated by El Museo's Chief Curator, Rodrigo Moura, and originally planned as an in-person experience, the exhibition was adapted as a virtual presentation that will be on view from August 6 to November 8, 2020.

The show departs from the term "popular painters" to identify artists working on the margins of modernism and the mainstream art world between the 1930s and 1970s, and will feature nearly 30 works from El Museo's Permanent Collection, several of them presented for the first time.

On view online August 6 - November 8, 2020

Live on Thursday, August 6th at El Museo's website
