 In the post-revolutionary period of the 1920s and 30s, Mexican art evolved in a unique manner, flourishing and attracting attention from around the world. No discussion of this history would be complete without mention of the painter Diego Rivera (1886–1957). Blessed with artistic talent, Rivera began attending art school at the age of ten. In 1907 he went to study in Europe, where he experimented with the latest styles such as Cubism and met Pablo Picasso. Upon returning home in 1921 he turned his attention to developments in Mexican society, becoming actively involved in the Mexican mural movement. Rivera also left behind a large number of fine portraits and genre paintings incorporating themes peculiar to Mexico.

 Organized in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (INBA), this exhibition traces Rivera's career from beginning to end through around 30 works including paintings, drawings and prints. In addition, it looks back at the dreams upheld by Mexican modern art by introducing José María Velasco, one of the pioneers of Mexican modern painting and a teacher of Rivera's, a variety of contemporaneous Mexican art movements, and Japanese artists such as Tsuguharu (Léonard) Foujita and Tamiji Kitagawa who had connections with Rivera.
