  • Flor Garduño (Mexico City, 1957)
  • Lourdes Almeida (Mexico City, 1952)
  • Cristina Kahlo (Frida Kahlo’s sister)

The exhibition highlights how modern Mexico produces world-class fine art, and has been a magnet for intellectuals from around the world.

After the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), artists were intrigued by the opportunity to create a new society out of classical Mexican culture at a time when everything seemed possible. Even within the generally conservative Mexican society, artists expanded boundaries for women, homosexuality, and modernity itself.

This exhibition is a continuing thread in Spencer Throckmorton’s fascination with Mexico as a fountain of creativity and social experimentation. The Throckmorton Fine Art gallery is one of the world’s major collectors and dealers in Latin American photography and Pre-Colombian art.
