Looking at works by Rivera, Kahlo, Siqueiros, and Orozco, this Gallery Session explores the diversity of the Mexican avant-garde—from Indigenism to Surrealism—and the possible reasons for its international appeal in the United States.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
