It is part of “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA”, the Getty’s far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles more than seventy cultural institutions across Southern California.
Anita Brenner chronicled the Mexican Renaissance of the 1920s and played a vital role in introducing Mexican art and culture to American audiences. The exhibition, organized by Skirball exhibition curator Laura Mart and guest curator Karen Cordero, illuminates the life and work of the Mexican-born American Jewish cultural trailblazer. Through more than 150 objects—including works by some of the most renowned Mexican artists such as Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and Frida Kahlo―the exhibition underscores her efforts to build cultural understanding between the United States and Mexico.

“Sharing Anita Brenner’s view of Mexico is very important to me, considering the political times we are currently living in”, said Ricardo B. Salinas. “Exchanges of culture can only strengthen a community, transcending any physical border. We should not allow to be separated by our differences but instead embrace and learn from each other.”
