Some recent arty happening in Oaxaca - highlights from two weeks in March 2017 -
Fantastic, as always, show at the textile museum. This show was devoted to examples of the human figure in textiles. A little sampler from the 1800's above.
Great wheat paste street art from Jose Olvera somewhere near Santa Domingo.
A whole show devoted to artist driven floor tiles made at the last factory of its kind in Oaxaca.
Hoarders delight in the kitchen of Rodolfo Morales house.
A start to finish knife making demonstration at the home workshop of the family who made all the swords for the movie Conan the Barabarian, a little tidbit they throw in during the demo. Cannot say quite how much I loved this. Can't wait to go back.
Another awesome textile show, this time upstairs at the textile musuem. Both floors are not to be missed.
Always blown away when I spot the work of Cesar Chavez. He's a great printmaker. In my head I sometimes think of him as the Edvard Munch of Oaxaca.
And always there's a calenda, a street dance with costume and music. Because this is Oaxaca.#realculture
