Mexican art at Panama Canal Museum. On Thursday, July 28, The Museum of the Interoceanic Canal of Panama will open the exhibition entitled “Mexico: Identidad Fantastica”, which offers a tour through various artistic movements that defined the important historical moments of Mexico’s last century.
This exhibition is an initiative organized by the Embassy of Mexico in Panama and the Mexican Agency of International Cooperation for Development, in cooperation with the Museum of the Interoceanic Canal.
Among the more than sixty works that make up this selection from the private collection “FEMSA” which focuses on Latin American art, there are the works of the Cubism era by Diego Rivera, which were painted in 1914 during his stay in Paris, under the heading “El grande de España”.
The largest piece on display is a painting by muralist, David Alfaro Siqueiros, made with industrial materials and which he named “Mujer Dormida” (1947).
Other highlights of the exhibition are “Mi vestido cuelga aquí” (1933), by Frida Kahlo; “September” by Angel Zarraga; as well as paintings by muralist Jose Clemente Orozco.
