Suzanne M. Schadl

Suzanne M. Schadl is curator of Latin American collections at the University of New Mexico, where she also teaches Latin American Studies and serves as Subject Librarian to American studies, Chicano studies and History. Frustrations in her own research on 19-century Brazil led Suzanne to advocate for preserving and providing access to ephemeral sources like posters and chapbooks. These kinds of resources are often shared today via blogs that disappear fast, not unlike pamphlets in the past. As a result of her recent participation in a Technological Innovation and Cooperation for Foreign Information Access (TICFIA) grant, Suzanne has been fortunate to work with students and colleagues to implement digitally born archiving projects that enhance physical collections. The ASARO collection at UNM is a particularly notable example.

“The Assembly of Revolutionary Artists of Oaxaca (ASARO) protest and rebel through their art, which follows a tradition established by important Mexican artists of the past including the Mexican Muralists and the Taller de Gráfica Popular. ASARO connects with their artistic and cultural history through a familiar and provocative manner that results in a visual language that is distinctly their own. Getting Up for the People is a significant contribution to the field of graphic arts history, but more than that, it gives light to the vital work of this important artist collective.“
—Theresa Avila, PhD, author of “Laborious Arts: El Taller de Gráfica Popular & the Meaning of Labor in Las Estampas de la Revolución Mexicana“

“This in-depth study of ASARO is timely and necessary for connecting the continuity of traditions embedded in Mexican art, and also for making visual art accessible to everyone.“
—Tey Marianna Nunn, PhD, director and chief curator, Art Museum at the National Hispanic Cultural Center

“In Mexico and other colonized places, it’s not just about getting up; it’s about getting people to tune in and think.“
—Cozca-13, street artist
