The Dallas Museum of Art announced that it will be the exclusive U.S. host of a major exhibition of modern Mexican art, featuring work by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and other giants of the first half of the 20th century.

The Dallas exhibition, its only appearance in the U.S. will include some pieces from the DMA collection.
The DMA has a rich history of collecting and presenting Mexican art, and this exhibition offers our visitors the opportunity to explore in-depth the diverse and vibrant voices that distinguish Mexican art during the first half of the 20th century, showcases not on the greats of Mexican art but also those who may have been eclipsed on the international level by names lie Rivera and Kahlo. The exhibition helps broaden our understanding of what modern Mexican art means, and diversify the artistic narratives attributed to the country. Enjoy this meaningful exhibit, and a make a visit to the DMA part of your summer festivities.
