Mexico: Fantastic Identity

Mexico: Fantastic Identity provides a unique platform from which to embark on a journey through the various art movements that were important in Mexico during the 20th Century. The exhibition presents masterpieces from landmark moments in modern Mexican art, including a Diego Rivera cubist work completed during his stay in Europe, a significant assemblage created by muralists José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Frida Kahlo’s 1933 painting My Dress Hangs There. Other highlights include work by José Luis Cuevas from the midcentury La Ruptura movement, Surrealist-inspired work of British émigré Leonora Carrington, and the contemporary photography of Graciela Iturbide.
