La Cartonería Mexicana / The Mexican Art of Paper and Paste

Jan 29, 2023 through Nov 3, 2024

Mexican cartonería uses simple materials of paste, cardboard, and paper to create a diverse array of subjects such as piñatas, dolls, Day of the Dead skeletons, and fantastical animals called alebrijes.  The first exhibition to focus exclusively on a Mexican folk art tradition in many years, La Cartonería Mexicana will display more than 100  historic sculptures from the Museum of International Folk Art’s Permanent Collection.  Many of the sculptures were collected by Alexander Girard and have never been displayed.
