During the inauguration, Mexico’s Foreign Minister, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, stressed that cultural and artistic exchanges between Mexico and the United States have twinned and enriched both countries, Notimex reported.
Accompanied by Maria Cristina Garcia Cepeda, director of the National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA, for its acronym in Spanish), the foreign minister welcomed the initiative of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts Palace to mount the most complete exhibition of modern Mexican art that has been presented in the United States over the past 70 years.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE, for its acronym in Spanish) said that the exhibition includes just over 200 paintings, photographs, sculptures and digital reproductions that exemplify the cultural ties between Mexico with the world and in particular with the United States.
The statement said that INBA jointly organized this unique exhibition with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and that it will explore a crucial period in the history of Mexican art, characterized by several social, political and cultural changes.
The exhibition includes four moments in the history of Mexican art, and it emphasizes the proposals made during the revolutionary 1910s and forward.
At that time national artists, influenced by international avant-garde styles such as impressionism, symbolism and cubism, permeated their works on ancient Mexico and on national modern culture.
The exhibition will be open to the public from October until January 8, 2017 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, while its exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Palace is planned from February 2 to April 30, 2017.
