The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Internationally beloved artists Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) and Diego Rivera (1886–1957) played a crucial role in defining and establishing the Avant-Garde cultural movement in Mexico in the early 20th century. Their famously stormy marriage reflected their diverging artistic styles: While Rivera’s art projected itself outward, often in vast murals and concerned itself with the construction of a national identity in postwar Mexico, Kahlo’s turned inward and represented Mexicanidad through an exploration of her personal identity. The exhibition will feature many of Kahlo’s most famous self-portraits and rarely seen oil paintings by Rivera, as well as works by other icons of Mexican modernism.

Coordinated for Portland Art Museum by Sara Krajewski, The Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
