Diego Rivera: Art for a New Age

Diego Rivera was one of the big men of 20th century art—big physically, in personality, and as an influence on American art at mid-century. His mural style was forged in the Mexican Revolution; in his American murals, he achieved an incongruous synthesis between a reverence for the indigenous cultures of his native land and an appreciation of the American industrial modernity. Overshadowed today by his wife Frida Kahlo, Rivera was a prodigious talent whose commitment to art as a political act resonates today. As he said, he didn’t believe in God, but he did believe in Picasso.

Independent Docent Speaker: Avril Angevine
Coinciding with Pan American Unity Exhibition at SFMOMA in June.
