Diego Rivera in El Pedregal at the Denver Art Museum
Join the Denver Art Museum for a presentation that focuses on Diego Rivera’s appropriation of Pre-Columbian spaces and figures in one of his most renowned works: the Anahucalli museum of archaeology (1940-1957).
Lecturer, Cristóbal Jacóme-Moreno, PhD, argues, Rivera understood Mexico’s pre-Columbian past not only as a series of successive events in time, but especially as an active, integrative force in an ever-changing present. Jacóme-Moreno is a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His current research focuses on mid-century Mexican architecture and its relationship to the indigenous past and the politics of national patrimony.
Free for Museum Friends, $15 for DAM members, $20 for nonmembers, and $5 for students.
