Mexican Modernism With Kahlo and Rivera

Due to the pandemic, the Denver Art Museum is adding a new virtual series to its collection. The first part of this online series will display works from Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, a Mexican Modernism exhibition. The exhibition will come in the form of a video for participants. In the video you will hear from the Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Rebecca Hart and interpretive specialist Ann Lambson as they share highlights from the exhibition.

Aside from the Mexican Modernism element of this exhibition, important women artists during this same period will also be featured. For example, visitors will see works from María Izquierdo’s. Izquierdo’s pieces form a beautiful variety of still-life fruits, vegetables, and a conch shell, symbolic of Mexico’s authentic beauty and fresh goods that the country is known for. You can also expect to see some post-war Mexican artworks such as Carlos Mérida’s vibrant and bold 1959 painting titled Festival of the Birds, which uses figurative, surreal, and geometric styles to depict a flock of birds.
