Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera at the Museum of Art in La Paz


Both exhibitions will be open to the public from May 13 to August 8 and represent a great opportunity to appreciate for the first time in Baja California Sur, the plastic works of two of the most important representatives of modern painting in Mexico.

The six drawings that make up the exhibition "Diego Rivera: the art of drawing" are part of the Diego Rivera Collection, which is under the custody of the Museo de Arte del Estado de Veracruz and is also considered national heritage.  Rivera's drawings are full of liveliness due to the directional mobility of his strokes. 

As for the work of Frida Kahlo, the Tlaxcalteca Institute of Culture received in 1982 a painting by the author and from this collection we are visited by an original painting titled Pancho Villa and the Adelita, made in 1927. In this painting we can appreciate other aspects that were already present in her work: a strong feminine presence and a constant revolutionary (or protest).

These important exhibitions come to Baja California Sur thanks to the enthusiastic collaboration of the governments of Veracruz and Tlaxcala, states where the work of these important artists of modern painting in Mexico is safeguarded.

The Museo de Arte de Baja California Sur is pleased to invite you to visit these exhibitions, remembering to take into account the sanitary measures in force. Visits can be guided or free and can be arranged by calling 612 12 94176, from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm.
