Experience the lives, loves, and influence of two art icons of the 20th century. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and her husband, the Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera. The myths that surrounded them in their lifetime arose not only from their significant bodies of work, but also from their friendships (and conflicts) with leading political figures and their passionate personal relationships. Both artists forged the way for Mexican art as a significant element of the 20th century and beyond. Similarly important is the legacy of Jacques and Natasha Gelman, who became Mexican citizens in 1942 and began amassing Mexican art by their close friends Kahlo and Rivera, as well as Rufino Tamayo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and others.

Ticketed with Scott Avett: INVISIBLE. Internationally recognized as co-founder of the band The Avett Brothers, Scott Avett has been a working artist, focusing on painting and printmaking, since he earned a BFA in studio art from East Carolina University in 2000. But until now this art-making part of his life has been a secret and a more solitary creative pursuit in comparison to his life as a musician, singer, and songwriter. Like his songs, Avett’s paintings speak to universal issues of spirituality and struggle, love and loss, heartache and joy, as well as more personal stories of career, family, and living in the South. The exhibition includes large-scale oil paintings, prints and paintings related to Avett’s musical career.

Conozca las vidas, los amores y la influencia de dos íconos del arte del siglo XX. Pocos artistas lograron cautivar al público con la fuerza que lo hicieron los pintores mexicanos Frida Kahlo y su esposo, Diego Rivera, quien también era muralista. Los mitos construidos en torno a ellos a lo largo de sus vidas se generaron no solo a partir de sus trabajos artísticos, sino también a partir de las amistades (y los conflictos) que mantuvieron con prominentes figuras políticas, así como sus apasionadas relaciones personales. Ambos artistas abrieron el camino para el arte mexicano y lo convirtieron en un elemento fundamental del siglo XX y más allá. Igual de importante fue el legado de Jacques y Natasha Gelman, ambos convertidos en ciudadanos mexicanos en 1942, y quienes comenzaron a acumular arte mexicano gracias a sus amigos Kahlo y Rivera, así como Rufino Tamayo y David Alfaro Siqueiros, entre otros.

La entrada de esta exhibición también es válida para Scott Avett: INVISIBLE. Reconocido internacionalmente como cofundador de la banda The Avett Brothers, Scott Avett es un artista que se concentró en la pintura y el grabado desde que se graduó en Bellas Artes en East Carolina University en 2000. Sin embargo, hasta el momento, su faceta de artista visual había sido un secreto y una búsqueda creativa solitaria en comparación con su vida de músico, cantante y compositor. Las canciones, así como las pinturas de Avett, representan cuestiones universales, como la espiritualidad y la lucha, el amor y la pérdida, la pena y la alegría, e incluso historias más personales de su carrera, su familia y la vida en el sur. La exhibición incluye óleos de gran escala, grabados y pinturas relativas a la carrera musical de Avett.
