Alberto Mijangos 159: A Retrospective of His Art (and Life)
Curated by Teresa Eckmann, Ph.D.
Ninety-six artworks by long-time San Antonio resident Alberto Mijangos (b. 1925 Mexico City—d. San Antonio, 2007) trace his artistic trajectory over the course of nearly a half-century from neo-figuration, to figurative abstraction, to post-modern appropriation as the artist mines a variety of themes such as flags, t-shirts, underwear, and Eduard Manet’s notorious Olympia of 1863. Large-scale mixed-media canvases boast of satisfying, richly layered surfaces, varied textures, and a poetic and culturally laden use of text, humor, and spirituality. Know one of San Antonio’s hidden treasures: Alberto Mijangos.
