DESCRIPTION

In reaction to the Mexican School of Painting and Mexican muralism, a group of artists identified as Generación de la Ruptura (Rupture Generation), went against the established nationalistic art that was part of Mexico’s post-revolutionary ideals. The movement began with the criticisms of José Luis Cuevas in the early 1950s, and his well-known manifesto “La Cortina de nopal” (The Cactus Curtain), followed by other artists such as Leonel Góngora, Alberto Gironella, Ricardo Martínez, Lilia Carrillo, Manuel Felguérez and Rafael Coronel. This exhibition will present a selection of works by artists who are representative of this movement, from MOLAA’s Permanent Collection.
