Mexican Modernism: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Others

Exhibition June 13 − September 27, 2020
The world's favorite artists, Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) and Diego Rivera (1886–1957), played a decisive role in defining and developing the avant-garde cultural movement in Mexico at the beginning of the 20th century.

Their famous stormy marriage reflected their divergent artistic styles: while Rivera's art was projected outward, often in the form of huge frescoes, and was engaged in creating a national identity in post-war Mexico, Calo turned inward and represented Mexicanidad through the study of her personal identity.

Onexhibitionmany of Calo’s most famous self-portraits and rare Rivera oil paintings, as well as works by other icons of Mexican modernism, will be featured.
