Diego Rivera's America

Implementation of a traveling exhibition about Diego Rivera’s murals and paintings from the 1920s to the 1940s.

SFMOMA requests support for the exhibition Diego Rivera’s America, on view October 24, 2020 – January 31, 2021. Diego Rivera (1886-1957) was one of the most aesthetically, socially, and politically ambitious artists of the 20th century. His complex compositions on public walls in Mexico and the United States made history and shaped history, and directly inspired muralists across the continent from the 1930s to today. Diego Rivera’s America is the most in-depth examination of the artist’s work in more than two decades. It will provide a new critical and contemporary interpretation of his images, whether painted on the wall or on the easel. The exhibition will be supported by a scholarly catalogue, education programs for students of all ages, and free public programs. Additionally, in-gallery interpretive media content will further contextualize Rivera and his work.
