Harley Shaiken, Director, UC Berkeley, Center for Latin American Studies
March 1932 was not a good time to come to Detroit. Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo arrived in the city in the midst of a plummeting economy and social upheaval. The artists painted during grim economic times, yet Riveras dream of a popular international art has found an enthusiastic new audience, and Kahlo has become iconic throughout the world. In this talk, Harley Shaiken will explore the ways in which art transcends borders.
Harley Shaiken is Class of 1930 Professor of Letters and Science and Director of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
