Event Description

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), with Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City (MPBA), presents Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time. The exhibition will run from December 4, 2016 through May 7, 2017.

This is an exhibition that examines moments of intersection in the formation of modernism both in Europe and Latin America, and asks how Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera—towering figures of the 20th century—both exchanged ideas in Paris about avant-garde paintings and later engaged with their respective ancient Mediterranean and Pre-Columbian worlds. Cocurated and conceived by Diana Magaloni, deputy director and director of the Program for the Art of the Ancient Americas at LACMA, and Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, and developed with Juan Coronel Rivera, curator from the MPBA, with guest curators James Oles and Jennifer Stager, the exhibition compares the artists’ trajectories beginning with their similar academic training to their shared investment in Cubism and their return to an engagement with antiquity from the 1920s through the 1950s.
