Join Curator Tere Arcq for a presentation about “Alice Rahon: Poetic Invocations” and the life and times of this Surrealist artist living in Mexico in the early twentieth century. Arcq has worked as chief curator at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, and as an independent curator has produced many high-profile exhibitions. She has served as a professor of Art History at Centro de Cultura Casa Lamm and published several essays for catalogues on Mexican modern art and women artists in Mexico, as well as Surrealism. She is currently advising the exhibition and catalog for the show Global Surrealism opening in 2021 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Tate Modern Gallery in London. Arcq is also collaborating with the Schirn Kunsthalle Museum in Frankurt and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark for the upcoming exhibition Fantastik Women, in Spring 2020 and writing for a publication on Leonora Carrington´s Tarot and one on Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington´s creative collaboration. She will be co-curating a Leonora Carrington retrospective for the Mapfre Foundation in Madrid and the Arken Museum in Denmark opening on the fall of 2020.
