Opening her doors to “others” wasn’t her only bold step; she offered narrative art and featured the Pattern and Decorative movement. Looking back, it’s hard to believe, but at the time, visually-spare abstraction in all its varied forms, from Ab Ex to Pop to conceptualism had dominated the field for so long that critics and collectors had to totally readjust their thinking in order to see what they had been missing.
“Narrative is my mission,” she says, “to pass on the artists who pass on the stories, theirs and others.” Steinbaum’s exhibitions were carefully curated to both expose and explain the importance of narrative and the Pattern and Decoration movements. Storytelling is a function of art, yet well into the 20th century women, minorities, and people of Asian or Latin cultures were excluded from art schools and exhibitions; their creative needs were relegated to crafts, and dismissed as unimportant.

An image transfer is, to put it simply, the act of transferring an image from one source to another. Depending upon what material you are wanting to transfer onto will depend on what type of transfer method you want to use. What I love about transfers as opposed to just taking the image itself and gluing it down, is the transparent effects you can get from transfers-- allowing you to layer images or let the surface design show through. i.e. as a patterned fabric or woodgrain. I love how permanent the final outcome can look as if it has been there forever or was printed or painted on as opposed to just glued. Depending on the method, some transfers create a lovely aged and distressed image due to the natural imperfection of the technique.

As an artist-led innovator in cultural strategy, we increase the capacity of emerging, mid career and established artists to tell new stories in new ways—our projects-collaboration travel through visual art, writing, music, theater, and other expressive channels. Because topics like how to survive, as an artist can be both tragic and beautiful, our projects address the bitter truths head-on while amplifying narratives of strength, resilience, and innovation.

Carlos Monsiváis Portrait Donation
by Josafat Miranda
From 1962 to 1963 and 1967 to 1968, Monsiváis was a fellow at the "Centro Mexicano de Escritores" ("Mexican Writers's Center").In 1965, he attended Harvard University's Center for International Studies.In 1969, Monsiváis published his first two essays: "Principados y potestades" (lit. "Princedoms and powers") and "Características de la cultura nacional" (lit. "Characteristics of the national culture"). They were characterized as being filled with a universal curiosity and the ability to distill the core essence of Mexican political and cultural life. In 1971, he penned a chronicle called Días de guardar, which was compiled into a book with his first essays. In 1976, Monsiváis composed Amor perdido, which detailed mythical film characters based upon popular song, left-wing politics, and the bourgeoisie. During the 1980s, Monsiváis prolifically wrote the bulk of many works that shaped and destined his career.
