The Philadelphia Museum of Art presents until January 8 of 2017 the exhibition titled "Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910-1950."
The exhibition is presented chronologically and covers from the start of the Mexican Revolution in 1910 to the aftermath of World War Two. Artists and intellectuals in Mexico who were at the center of a great debate about the destiny of their country tell the story of this period through their work.
"Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910-1950" includes an impressive number of images that range from works by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Frida Kahlo, Rufino Tamayo, and other artists from that period like Dr. Atl, María Izquierdo, Roberto Montenegro, Carlos Mérida, and Manuel Álvarez-Bravo, among others. The show offers a deep look into the forces that shaped modern art in Mexico. It is named after an essay by US writer John Dos Passos, who saw the revolutionary...murals while visiting the Mexican capital in 1926-1927.
In addition to the portable murals, easel paintings, photographs, prints, books, and broadsheets, the exhibition includes digitized images of murals by the "Three Great" (Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros).
The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City and consists of works from Mexican and US collections. "Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910-1950" is regarded as the most comprehensive exhibition of Mexican Modernism to be presented in the US in more than 70 years.
