@ Museum of Modern Art – MoMA – 11 W. 53rd Street

The Museum of Modern Art honors Diego Rivera with a retrospective of the Mexican muralist’s work, the first time many of the paintings have been exhibited at the museum since they were created there—in 1931. Back then, MoMA established studio space for Rivera and asked him to travel to New York City to paint; the process was conceived as a solution to the problem inherent to the artist’s methodology, since his murals were site-specific. During his stay in New York, Rivera produced, among other works, Agrarian Leader Zapata, along with his iconic mural in Rockefeller Center. This new exhibition collects eight of Rivera’s large-scale murals, along with drawings, paintings and other archival materials.
