indigenous culture and their supporters played in the emergence of
national identity and creative spirit after the Mexican Revolution
ended in 1920. Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism

the centennial anniversary of the end of the Mexican Revolution upon
us, we look forward to presenting an exhibition that highlights this
vital period in history through a variety of artistic mediums,”
said Christoph Heinrich, Frederick and Jan Mayer Director at the DAM.
“This is the first time we will showcase more than 20 artworks
by the famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, which include paintings and
of the featured exhibition artworks will be on view from the
Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. Mr. Gelman was a major
influencer of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, which took place from
the 1930s until the mid-1900s, through his partner role at Posa
Films, and his connection to film was instrumental in linking the
Gelmans to an influential circle of artists. The couple assembled a
strong collection of Mexican modernism movement artworks by
collecting primarily from friends who were active during the Mexican
modernism movement. Their circle of friends included Kahlo and
Rivera, who each completed commissioned paintings for the family
during Mexico City’s important energetic arts scene period.
