Diego Rivera’s America
The most in-depth examination of the artist’s work in over two decades, “Diego Rivera’s America” brings together more than 150 of Rivera’s paintings, frescoes, and drawings—as well as three galleries devoted to large-scale film projections of highly influential murals he created in Mexico and the United States.
Rather than surveying his entire career, the exhibition focuses on Rivera’s work from the 1920s to the mid-1940s, when he was conceiving a new vision for North America informed by his travels in Mexico and the U.S.
“Diego Rivera’s America” opened at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on Jul. 16, 2022, and will be on view through Jan. 2, 2023. The museum is open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
