As part of the Dallas Museum of Art’s celebration of the bicentennial of Mexico’s independence, the exhibition Tierra y Gente: Modern Mexican Works on Paper is drawn from the DMA’s collection of mid-20th-century Mexican works on paper. The selection of prints, drawings, and photographs reflect on political issues in the years following the 1910 revolution. Many of the major artists highlighted in the exhibition were strongly influenced by José Guadalupe Posada and show significant moments in the history of Mexican art.
