Revolutionary Art

Not content with giving the world swine flu and sombreros, the Mexico Tourism Board UK is sponsoring an art exhibition with a difference at the British Museum in London: Revolution on paper: Mexican prints 1910–1960. The show features 130 works by over 40 artists, including the three giants of Mexican revolutionary art: Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros. This anachronistic woodcut Portrait of Emiliano Zapata by Angel Zamarripa dates from about 1953. The show runs from 22 October to 28 February 2010 in Room 90, and the admission fee is perfect for Coxsoft: free.
