According to the DAM's Facebook page, there are some plans underway to share some of the tour content for those who can't attend. More will be announced on this.
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism will explore the Mexican modernism movement through paintings and photography. It will feature 13 works by Diego Rivera, more than 20 of Frida Kahlo's works, and a wide variety of other pieces by celebrated artists.
"Featuring more than 150 artworks by internationally celebrated artists Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Gunther Gerzso, María Izquierdo, Carlos Mérida, and others, this exhibition will take a closer look at the role art, artists, and their supporters played in the emergence of national identity and creative spirit after the Mexican Revolution ended in 1920," said the museum website.
Rivera's well-known Calla Lilly Vendor and Kahlo's well-known Diego on my Mind will be featured in the exhibit. Most of the works on view will be from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. Jacques and Natasha assembled a robust collection of Mexican modernist artworks by collecting primarily from friends, such as Frida and Diego, who completed commissioned paintings for the family.
