Like Aaron Copland, Paul Strand, and many others from the US, John Steinbeck who spoke Spanish was galvanized by the Mexico he discovered in the s — the land, its people, and the prospect of radical social and political change.
He wrote a treatment for a film on the life and times of martyred revolutionary Emiliano Zapata, a text long lost and now published as Zapata, which reflected his optimism. And yet the Viva Zapata film project in which he participated projects a different perception of Mexico ensnared in the politics of the Cold War and the Red Scare.

September 13, , pm at the Mexican Cultural Institute. Join us for an evening of anthropological inquiry with Diana Magaloni, director of Mexico's celebrated Museum of Anthropology and History, as she delivers a lecture entitled "Mural Painting and the Mayan Tradition: Materials, Techniques, and Artists. The Mexican Revolution--that violent, inchoate, never-quite-complete break with the past--opened a new era in Mexican art and letters now known as the "Mexican Renaissance.
Into this milieu came Anita Brenner, in her early twenties already trying her hand as a journalist, art critic, and anthropologist. Her journals of the period to vividly transport us to this vital moment in Mexico, when building a "new nation" was the goal. Brenner became a member of Rivera's inner circle, and her journals provide fascinating portraits of its members, including Orozco, Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, and Jean Charlot, with whom she had an unusual loving relationship.
She captures the major and minor players in the act of creating works for which they are now famous and records their comings and goings, alliances and feuds. Numerous images of their art brilliantly counterpoint her diary descriptions. Brenner also reveals her own maturation as a perceptive observer and writer who, at twenty-four, published her first book, Idols Behind Altars. Her initial plan for Idols included four hundred images taken by photographers Edward Weston and Tina Modotti.
Many of these images, which were ultimately not included in Idols, are published here for the first time along with stunning portraits of Brenner herself.

Known for his captivating use of color, Rufino Tamayo created a unique form of modernism in Mexico. Tamayo synthesized the aesthetics of the European vanguards with Mexican content and form in a dynamic tension.
His refusal to be didactic, yet his insistence on promoting Mexican aesthetics and motifs, has had a profound legacy on the development of modernism in Mexico, the United States, and Europe, places he lived and worked throughout his life. Anna Indych - Lopez will discuss Tamayo's various aesthetic influences, the contexts in which he worked, and the ways in which he constructed a new paradigm for Mexican painting.
Architect Enrique Norten explains why he relies less on inspiration than on a complex and analytical research-focused design process. Norten has also designed two striking new buildings for Washington, D. Martin Moeller, Jr. Rivera -a forty five year old, openly Communist, Mexican artist- may have seemed an unlikely choice for the young Museum's second only retrospective, but the show was wildly popular. Rivera's international celebrity was based on his fame as a muralist. But murals -by definition fixed on site- were impossible to transport. In order to solve this problem, the Museum brought Rivera to New York from Mexico six weeks before the opening, and installed him in a makeshift studio space in an empty gallery.
There he produced eight "portable" murals -freestanding fresco panels- which were featured in the show. Five of these monumental works are now on view in the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, along with working drawings and related material. Together these projects provide a compelling perspective on the intersection of art making and radical politics in the s.
