Francisco Toledo: Contemporary Graphic Art

Mar 3 - Apr 16 2006

UB Anderson Gallery

This exhibition highlights prints from UB’s permanent collection by Francisco Toledo. Toledo’s graphic works create a metamorphosed fantastical reality that explores the transcendental experience of ecstasy through eroticism, laughter, fear, violence, sacrifice and desire.

Toledo was born in 1940 in Juchitan, Mexico of Zapotec decent. He studied at the Talle Libre de Brabado de la Escuela Diseno y Artesanías. In 1960, Toledo moved to Paris where he studied at Stanley William Hayter’s engraving workshop.

Curated by Sherry Corcoran, a graduate student from the UB Department of Art History.

Brochure available.
