Event Description

Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles will present Artists of Mexico, an exhibition of significant 20th century artists featuring paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture. The exhibition will open with a reception on Saturday, June 17, from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts located at 357 N. La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles. The exhibition extends through August 19.

Artists of Mexico is presented in anticipation of the Getty Foundation’s region-wide endeavor, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, officially opening in September 2017. Artists of Mexico at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts features artists whose works and careers had particular resonance in Los Angeles by way of the artists’ personal histories in L.A., their many exhibitions in Southern California, and in many instances through their widely known public works throughout the region. For many of these artists, their most avid collectors in the U.S. were indeed in Los Angeles, in advance of their now widespread international museum recognition. Los Angeles’ and Hollywood’s interest in these artists particularly served to expand these artists’ recognition not only throughout the U.S., but also within Mexico.

Included in the exhibition are: Jean Charlot, Rafael Coronel, José Luis Cuevas, Bernice Kolko, Gustavo Montoya, Alfredo Ramos Martinez, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo and Francisco Zúñiga. (Read more about their Los Angeles connections in the biographical profiles at the end of our press release.)

Artists of Mexico is presented in anticipation of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin America and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA takes place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. For additional information regarding PST LA/LA, please visit pacificstandardtime.org.

Following the Artists of Mexico exhibition, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts will present a series of focused, solo exhibitions in concert with Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. On September 23, 2017 the gallery will present Hans Burkhardt in Mexico, showing paintings and drawings from the 1950s to the early 1960s. In January 2018, the gallery will present two concurrent exhibitions, Rico Lebrun in Mexicoand Francisco Zúñiga – Indigenous Beauty.

Artists of Mexico opens Saturday, June 17 with a reception from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. and extends through August 19 at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts located at 357 North La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For further information phone: (323) 938-5222 or email jrutberg@jackrutbergfinearts.com.
