El Circo sobre la Mesa

A Circus on the Table
August 3 to October 16, 2022
Opening Reception: Friday, August 19th
5 to 7 pm

Artist Talk at 5:30 pm

An exciting new exhibition called “El Circo sobre la Mesa: The Circus on the Table” will feature the artwork of Mexican-born artist Francisco Mora. The exhibition opens August 4th at the Cedarburg Art Museum.

Autobiographical elements and a blend of personal mythology, Mexican surrealism, and indigenous symbolism inform the artwork of Milwaukee-based artist Francisco X. Mora. In the exhibition “El Circo sobre la Mesa” (the circus on the table), Mexican-born Mora presents memories from his mother’s home in the little Mexican town of Cuenco de Flores (bowl of flowers).

Mora muses, “It was always a pleasure to sit down at her table. Not only for the food, but for the wonderful, endless conversations. She always had fruit, flowers, a few friendly bugs, and the occasional curious lizard. Soon, I got used to sharing a meal or two with her unusual, yet lovely guests.”
