The San Diego Museum of Art is pleased to present Modern Masters from Latin America: The Pérez Simón Collection, an exhibition showcasing 102 works of art by some of the greatest modern masters from countries including Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Drawn from one of the world’s foremost private collections, this exhibition illustrates the multifaceted history of Latin American modernism. The collection will be on view at the Museum October 21, 2017 through March 11, 2018.

Spanning the late 1800s to the first decade of this century, Modern Masters from Latin America: The Pérez Simón Collection represents more than 75 artists, each celebrated for their respective techniques and regional influence on modernism. Noteworthy artists include Frida Kahlo, Rufino Tamayo, Fernando Botero, Jose Maria Velasco, Joaquín Torres-García, Kazuya Sakai, Jesús Rafael Soto, Roberto Matta, Wilfredo Lam, as well as Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and José Clemente Orozco – the three pioneers of the Mexican muralism movement.

To complement this exhibition, The San Diego Museum of Art is hosting Frida and Me, an educational exhibition aimed at children that explores the inventiveness and power of Frida Kahlo’s work. Produced by the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris as well as Arts & Fun and its general manager, Deidré Guevara Gallegos, Frida and Me is composed of multiple modules based on Kahlo’s life and the famed Casa Azul, her residence in Mexico City that furnished an important part of her artistic identity.
