Witness an extraordinary moment in the history of modern art, one fueled by cultural and political revolution.
From the start of the Mexican Revolution in 1910 to the aftermath of World War II, artists and intellectuals in Mexico were at the center of a great debate about their country’s destiny. The exhibition tells the story of this exhilarating period through a remarkable range of images, from masterpieces by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Frida Kahlo, and Rufino Tamayo to transfixing works by their contemporaries Dr. Atl, María Izquierdo, Roberto Montenegro, Carlos Mérida, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, and many others.Paint the Revolution offers a deep look at the forces that shaped modern art in Mexico, the progress of which was closely watched around the world. The exhibition takes its name from an impassioned essay by American novelist John Dos Passos, who saw Mexico’s revolutionary murals during a visit to Mexico City in 1926–27.In addition to featuring portable murals, easel paintings, photographs, prints, books, and broadsheets, the exhibition will display murals by the Tres grandes (Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros) in digital form.The Philadelphia Museum of Art presents this landmark exhibition in partnership with the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. Drawn from US and Mexican collections, it is the most comprehensive exhibition of Mexican modernism to be shown in the United States in more than seven decades.

The Maya are one of the oldest cultures in the world. This exhibition is all about the magnificent artistic forms of expression of the Maya. With a collection of around 300 works of art, including many Mexican national treasures, it displays the fundamental aspects of pre-Hispanic art: the body and the physique are central to this exhibition. The Maya present their vision of life using various materials and techniques from their daily life, splendid buildings and works of art. They describe their relationship with gods, their everyday existence, their literature, their astronomy, their music and their dances. What often dominates these works is an idealised notion of humanity, which the Maya retained not only in their conception of humans and the ideal of beauty, but also in the location of mankind in the cosmos.

El Instituto de México en España (Madrid) acoge hasta el 16 de enero una amplia selección de obras del gran ilustrador mexicano José Guadalupe Posada (Aguascalientes, 1852-1913). Más conocido por ser el creador de la Catrina, Posada fue un cronista excepcional de la historia cotidiana de su país entre finales del siglo XIX y principios de XX.
Para dar una lectura diferente del cronista gráfico José Guadalupe Posada, el Instituto de México en España presenta la exposición “Posada. Fantasías, calaveras y vida cotidiana”, cuyo comisario es el investigador Agustín Sánchez González.
Esta es la tercera vez que la exposición se presenta en España, pues antes estuvo en el Castillo de Santa Catalina, ubicado en Cádiz, con un balance de 57 mil visitantes y después en Alcalá de Henares.
Sánchez González, quien por más de 15 años ha investigado la obra y vida de Posada, recalcó que la muestra “pretende destacar que la fama e inmortalidad de este artista radica en que su obra estaba presente en todos los ámbitos de la vida cotidiana, fue el gran ilustrador de lo mexicano y su obra sentó las bases del arte mexicano contemporáneo”.
El especialista también habló de la relación de Posada con España y la influencia que tuvo de artistas españoles como Francisco de Goya.
