The ASU Art Museum presents his first solo exhibition in Arizona – “The Final Cut”

José Clemente Orozco was born in Jalisco and is one of the most significant artist to come out of Mexico in the 20th century, although largely underrecognized in the U.S. He painted more than seven major murals in Mexico and the U.S. They featured universal themes of human experience and modernization.

He painted his masterpiece “The Man on Fire” in the Hospicio Cabañas, one of the oldest hospital complexes in Latin America.

The exhibition includes works of art late in the artist’s career. Many of these works have never been seen in the U.S. and they illustrate the artist’s career-long interests in human history and politics, surrealism, symbolism, abstraction and the human form.

The exhibition’s moveable works reveal Orozco’s creative process and how he worked through the ideas and formal problems that appeared in his site-specific, monumental murals. This exhibition is accompanied with a catalog (published by Temblores Publicaciones) with new scholarship written about his final years.
