More information on this program: 

The presentation will consist of Mixografia's historical background, mainly how Lea and Luis Remba founded Taller de Grafica Mexicana and how meeting Rufino Tamayo and developing the Mixografia printing technique led to the founding of the Mixografia workshop.

The presentation will also explain and illustrate printing process, covering the technical aspects of how, from a three dimensional concept developed by the artist, an edition of prints on handmade paper is produced.

Along with historical and technical aspects of the relationship between the Rembas and the Tamayos, the presentation will cover some of the personal aspects and stories of that relationship which lasted for almost 20 years.

Finally, we will address the latest developments at the workshop, our current projects, and Tamayo's lasting impact.
