Detroit art museum to open Rivera and Kahlo exhibition in March

A public exhibition is set to take place this month at Detroit’s Institute of Arts which has been in the past renowned for its Diego Rivera murals. In the open public exhibition there will be works of Rivera as well as those of Frida Kahlo (his wife) being showcased in what is being termed as the biggest ever exhibition since the museum was threatened due to the city’s bankruptcy.

The exhibition dubbed, “Diego Rivera and Fridah Kahlo” will see nearly 70 works which have been done by the Mexican artists being showcased. In addition to that the exhibition will in the beginning focus on the pairs 11 months that they spent together in Detroit that is between the years 1932 and 1933. During this time Rivera was working on the murals of the “Detroit Industry.”

Part of the opening during Sunday’s exhibition will be Rivera’s preparatory drawings which have not been show anywhere else in nearly 30 years.

Graham Beal, the museum’s director, said that there had been plans of hosting such as an exhibition but due to uncertainty which was surrounding the city owned institutions as well as other setbacks delayed the whole process of staging up the exhibition. He also added that there had been a number of works which were obtained on a loan basis from the U.S., Mexico as well as private collectors.
"When we knew we had a life in front of us, we returned to the idea of the Rivera exhibition, based on the Rivera murals," Beal said.
