Mexico Modern: Art, Commerce, and Cultural Exchange, 1920–1945
Chronicling two decades of cultural exchange between Mexico and the United States, this exhibition showcases examples of modern Mexican art and design. The more than 200 items are drawn primarily from the collections of the Harry Ransom Center.
The exhibition highlights the important history of 20th-century art and how artists, museum curators, gallery owners, journalists and publishers in both countries instigated a cultural phenomenon by creating and promoting art that pioneered a synthesis of indigenous traditions and international aesthetics.
Free public tours every day at noon, and also at Thursdays at 6 p.m., and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Learn more: http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/mexicomodern
