“Making Modern” at MFA Boston Features Kahlo, Pollock & More
A series of new installations on the third floor of the Art of the Americas Wing at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), explores the notion of “Making Modern” in the 20th century. From Frida Kahlo to Jackson Pollock, Modern artists in the Americas were influenced by a variety of teachers, colleagues and friends. Starting with diverse sources of inspiration, they took their art in dramatic new directions. Each gallery in the installation represents a moment—from Mexico City to New York to Boston—that illustrates the evolution of Modern art in North America. Featuring new acquisitions, rarely seen loans, and masterpieces from the MFA’s collection, the installations provide a fresh perspective on Modern artists working in the 20th century.
Kahlo and Her Circle (Robert and Jane Burke Gallery) displays the work of Frida Kahlo and her circle of family and friends in Mexico City. Anchored by the MFA’s recently acquired and newly conserved Dos Mujeres (1928) by Kahlo, the installation includes photographs by Tina Modotti, Edward Weston and Imogen Cunningham, lithographs by Diego Rivera, and recently acquired archival material related to the artists.
