The exhibition will examine the intense thirty year period of artistic creativity that took place in Mexico at the beginning of the twentieth century. The turmoil of the revolution between 1910 and 1920 ushered in a period of profound political change in which the arts were placed centre stage. Highlights include works by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros plus international artists such as Josef Albers, Edward Burra, Paul Strand, Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Breton and Robert Capa.
The exhibition runs from 6 July – 29 September 2013.
