Where form meets function

Harnessing the grand tradition of print making in Mexico, modernist artists gravitated to the graphic arts as a way to explore indigenous and pre-Hispanic past. Vida Y Drama presents a concise selection of work produced between 1926 and 1932 by Rufino Tamayo, Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Together these men defined and set a standard for modern Mexican style.

Vida Y Drama opens May 30, 2009 at MFA Boston.
