Event Details

The Palm Springs Art Museum presents The Influence of Modern Mexican Art Beyond Borders: Selection of Works on Paper from the Collection

The revolution of 1910-1920 proved to be a defining event in modern Mexican history. It inspired new artistic, social, and cultural developments that gained international recognition, attracting a significant group of European, North American, and South American artists to Mexico’s vital and dynamic artistic community.   

This installation includes a diverse selection of works on paper by sixteen artists, including Mexican modernists Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Guatemalan artist Carlos Merida, and American artist Pablo O’Higgins, among others.

At the core of this installation are works collected by American author, publisher, and anthropologist Frances Toor after her move to Mexico. Toor worked alongside many of these artists, primarily during the production of her bilingual magazine, Mexican Folkways, published from 1925 to1937. Her collection was inherited by her brother, Herbert Toor, who generously gifted their combined collection to the museum. A companion exhibition of paintings by modern Mexican and other artists is on exhibit in the Throckmorton Mezzanine Gallery. 

Organized from the museum’s collection, this exhibition is curated by Christine Giles, Senior Curator.

The Museum is open Thursday - Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm / The Museum is open to 7:00 PM on Thursdays.
