Join us for a virtual art talk to discuss the work of famous Ecuadorean painter Camilo Egas.
Art Historian and Director of the Museo Camilo Egas in Quito, Fabián Paocarina will talk about one of the most prolific and influential Ecuadorean painters of all times. Egas started the Indigenist Movement in Ecuador, and the art movement Pictorial Indigenism.
The main focus of his art were Andean themes and the struggles of indigenous people in Ecuador. He lived in New York where he built the first Art Department at the New School. Egas was a very creative painter and explored various styles throughout his career. Beginning with Social Realism, he later incorporated Surrealism and Neo-Cubism and, finally, Abstract Expressionism.
The talk will be conducted mainly in Spanish and English will be used just for clarification. All levels are welcome!
