Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time

Lilly Casillas, MA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), with Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City (MPBA), presents Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time, an exhibition of over 100 prints and paintings. The exhibition examines moments of intersection in the formation of modernism, both in Europe and in Latin America, and asks how Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera, towering figures of the twentieth century, exchanged ideas in Paris about avant-garde paintings and later engaged with their respective ancient Mediterranean and Pre-Columbian worlds. Their approach to understanding ancient art was in many ways subversive: by doing so, they rewrote art history, greatly enlarging the recognition of artistic contributions of ancient civilizations.

This lecture previews the exhibition, which will be visited by Osher on Saturday, April 22. The exhibition closes on May 7, 2017.

Instructor: Lilly Casillas provided curatorial work on the Picasso-Rivera exhibition and is co-author of the exhibition catalog. She has a BA in art history from UC Berkeley and an MA in curatorial practice from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London.
