Coming to the Albuquerque Museum in February 2021, this exhibit epitomizes the vitality and expressiveness of modern Mexican art. Captivating works by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo are complemented by key pieces by contemporaries such as Lola Álvarez Bravo, María Izquierdo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo. These are enhanced by period photographs that give a glimpse of important Mexican cultural figures, most notably Kahlo and Rivera. Join Art Curator Josie Lopez for a livestreamed program on this exhibit.
