This unique survey of approximately 95 works takes a close look at paintings, prints and photographs created over the past eighty years. The exhibition examines and celebrates work by artists on both sides of the border—American and Mexican-American—to reveal a variety of cultural aspects as they emerged in the years after the Mexican Revolution (1910–1920) to the present day. The works included are by some of the best-known Mexican artists—Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Gabriel Orozco, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Gunther Gerzso—as well as Mexican-American artists such as Judithe Hernandez, Roberto Juarez and Robert Graham. Visitors to the Miradas exhibition will have the opportunity to observe the works of a number of artists who have been attracted to and inspired by Mexico’s ancient civilizations and modern artistic theories alike.

Many artists of Mexican descent working in the United States continue to implement social ideas and educational theories first taken up by modern Mexican artists at the end of the Mexican Revolution. They also understand and react to the sociopolitical climate in the United States and the global art and theories of the second half of the twentieth century, incorporating contemporary regional politics along with their broad understanding of their diverse heritages. The Miradas exhibition allows visitors to survey this rich trajectory.

This exhibition was originally curated by Cesáreo Moreno of the National Museum of Mexican Art in collaboration with Bank of America’s corporate art program staff.

This unique survey of approximately 95 works takes a close look at paintings, prints and photographs created over the past eighty years. The exhibition examines and celebrates work by artists on both sides of the border—American and Mexican-American—to reveal a variety of cultural aspects as they emerged in the years after the Mexican Revolution (1910–1920) to the present day. The works included are by some of the best-known Mexican artists—Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Gabriel Orozco, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Gunther Gerzso—as well as Mexican-American artists such as Judithe Hernandez, Roberto Juarez and Robert Graham. Visitors to the Miradas exhibition will have the opportunity to observe the works of a number of artists who have been attracted to and inspired by Mexico’s ancient civilizations and modern artistic theories alike.

Many artists of Mexican descent working in the United States continue to implement social ideas and educational theories first taken up by modern Mexican artists at the end of the Mexican Revolution. They also understand and react to the sociopolitical climate in the United States and the global art and theories of the second half of the twentieth century, incorporating contemporary regional politics along with their broad understanding of their diverse heritages. The Miradas exhibition allows visitors to survey this rich trajectory.

This exhibition was originally curated by Cesáreo Moreno of the National Museum of Mexican Art in collaboration with Bank of America’s corporate art program staff.

This Exhibition is provided by Bank of America Art in our Communities program.

This unique survey of approximately 95 works takes a close look at paintings, prints and photographs created over the past eighty years. The exhibition examines and celebrates work by artists on both sides of the border—American and Mexican-American—to reveal a variety of cultural aspects as they emerged in the years after the Mexican Revolution (1910–1920) to the present day. The works included are by some of the best-known Mexican artists—Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Gabriel Orozco, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Gunther Gerzso—as well as Mexican-American artists such as Judithe Hernandez, Roberto Juarez and Robert Graham. Visitors to the Miradas exhibition will have the opportunity to observe the works of a number of artists who have been attracted to and inspired by Mexico’s ancient civilizations and modern artistic theories alike.

Many artists of Mexican descent working in the United States continue to implement social ideas and educational theories first taken up by modern Mexican artists at the end of the Mexican Revolution. They also understand and react to the sociopolitical climate in the United States and the global art and theories of the second half of the twentieth century, incorporating contemporary regional politics along with their broad understanding of their diverse heritages. The Miradas exhibition allows visitors to survey this rich trajectory.

This exhibition was originally curated by Cesáreo Moreno of the National Museum of Mexican Art in collaboration with Bank of America’s corporate art program staff.

This Exhibition is provided by Bank of America Art in our Communities program.
