Mexican Modern Exhibition at EPMA
The El Paso Museum of Art is pleased to serve as the last of only two venues in the United States for Mexican Modern: Masters of the 20th Century. Comprised of more than 60 works, the exhibition showcases the work of 26 artists active between the years 1920 and 1955. A rich period following the revolution, the Mexican Renaissance was dominated by experimental artists freely exploring their cultural identity and commenting on social issues. The exhibition includes works by Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Frida Kahlo and many others.
Many of the artists featured in Mexican Modern were well-known muralists who painted on public buildings in Mexico City out of conviction that art should be of and for the people. Mexican Modernism is known for its beauty, simplicity, use of vibrant colors and bold socio-political commentary. Works during this time expressed national pride and love of everyday life and traditions.
