Jose Chavez Morado

April 7, 2012

Just a few minutes walk from the apartment, passing through the tiled and tree-lined park which follows the Alameda, we found the Baluarte Candalaria, an old (17th Century) fort, now an exhibition space/cultural venue. We were last here two years ago, at night, to watch a flamenco show. The place looked completely different this time – without the tables and the chairs, and the Manzanilla. And where did all those trees come from ?

Inside, an unexpected treat, an exhibition of the Mexican artist/muralist Jose Chavez Morado. A contemporary of Diego Rivera, big chunky feet and hands, fantastic stuff, and completely unknown to me. Check out the astronomer (with a bit of imagination).
