In the 80 years since Picasso painted his masterpiece Guernica, it has become one of the most recognizable works of art in the world. It is a symbol of resistance and a reminder of injustice in our world. Picasso’s aim was to convey the horrors of war—specifically, the 1937 German bombing of the small Basque village in northern Spain seen as a base for the Republican forces during the Spanish Civil War. Access Gallery at 909 Santa Fe Drive is holding an exhibit honoring the original painting and the symbolic tradition it encompasses, while relating to modern injustices like disability rights, the plight of Syrian refugees and the challenges of deaf artists in the USA
The exhibit, 80 Years–Guernica Revisited runs April 7-30, 2017 with a reception on First Friday, April 7 and Third Friday April 21 from 5:30-8:30. The show will feature a mural entitled Really modeled on Picasso’s piece, that was created in 2013 with Artist-in-Residence Javier Flores. It was exhibited at the time and will be showcased again, along with other Guernica inspired works by Matt Sesow, Nancy Rourke, Javier Flores, Shazia’Ayn Babul and Josiah Lopez.
