Engraving Injustice

Taller de Gráfica Popular (People’s Print Workshop), most commonly known as TGP, was founded in Mexico City in 1937, by artists Leopoldo Mendez, Pablo O’Higgins, and Luis Arena. TGP artists were political activists whose work represented a variety of political and social causes, such as the exploitation of the poor, the abuse of peasant rights, and the land-ownership system, among others. Many of the TGP prints depict Mexican history, including the 19th-century fight for independence from Spain and France, and the revolution of 1910.
This is exhibit is presented by Casa Azul from the personal collection of Dr. Robert Healy.
