In this session we look at the diversity of Latin American artists in MoMA's collection and explore the many ways in which artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Marisol, and others contributed to the mainstream language of modern art in America.

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.
