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 most comprehensive exhibition of modern Mexican art displayed in the United States in more than seven decades, Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910–1950 tells the story of this exhilarating period through a remarkable range of masterpieces by well-known figures such as Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo, as well as many of their important contemporaries.

Join this private tour of Paint the Revolution to explore how Mexico emerged as a center of modern art.
