In 1910, revolution brought years of instability to Mexico but, in its aftermath, the artistic community flourished under state sponsored programmes designed to promote the ideals of the new regime.

This exhibition will bring together work by Mexican artists at the forefront of the artistic movement including Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Also on display will be work by international artists and intellectuals who were drawn to the country by its political aspirations and the opportunities afforded to artists. Among them were Marsden Hartley, Josef Albers, Edward Burra, Paul Strand, Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Breton and Robert Capa.

'Mexico: A Revolution in Art, 1910-1940' will reveal a cultural renaissance that drew in some of the most seminal figures of the 20th century, all of whom were inspired by the same subject: Mexico.
