Siqueiros is one of the country’s famed Los Tres Grandes along with his contemporaries, Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco.
Siqueiros in Los Angeles: Censorship Defied (September 24, 2010–January 9, 2011)
While completing three murals in 1932 Los Angeles, David Alfaro Siqueiros explored new techniques and experimented with perspective, all the while fomenting a new artistic and political aesthetic that took root in the city but eventually resulted in his near deportation. This exhibition, which featured more than 100 works and materials drawn from archives across the continent, explored this fertile period in the life and work of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.
