Early and mid-20th-century Mexican art is characterized by a powerful blend of politics and revolutionary spirit, pre-Columbian and indigenous art influences, and modernism in both art and life.
Drawn from ASU Art Museum’s collection, "Bajo Presión/Under Pressure" features paintings and prints by Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Leopoldo Méndez and Rufino Tamayo among others.
Supported by the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund.
