Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910–1950

Through October 1, 2017

The most comprehensive compilation of Mexican modern art in the United States in 70 years has landed in Space City, bringing with it masterpieces by Frida Kahlo, Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and many more.

Spanning four decades, the show offers visitors a unique look at the art of the Mexican Revolution through World War II. This period in Mexican history is rich and complex, marked by dramatic change. Art was a significant player in those cultural shifts, and the exhibition magnificently expresses and reflects the conversations about the destiny of their country that Mexican intellectuals were engaging in from 1910-1950.

The exhibition presents art in many forms, from paintings to photographs to digital displays of murals by los tres grandes (Orozco, Rivera, and Siqueiros). Debuting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the fall of 2016, the show traveled to the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City before landing in the Houston Museum District. It will be on display at the MFAH until October 1, 2017.
