Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection @ North Carolina Museum of Art - East Building, Meymandi Exhibition Gallery
Oct 26 2019 – Jan 19 2020 all-day
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection @ North Carolina Museum of Art - East Building, Meymandi Exhibition Gallery

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection presents the paintings of two icons of the 20th century. Few artists have captured the public’s imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–54) and her husband, the Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957). The myths that surrounded them in their lifetime arose not only from their significant bodies of work, but also from their friendships (and conflicts) with leading political figures and their passionate, tempestuous personal relationships.

Kahlo and Rivera’s works are varied in scope and inspiration: she is best-known for her self-portraits, while he worked as a large-scale muralist in Mexico and the United States. Kahlo’s work is deeply personal, often depicting her own dreams, painful personal experiences, and affinity with Mexican culture, while Rivera’s pursues larger looks at history and cultural revolution. Both artists forged the way for Mexican art as a significant element of the 20th century and beyond.

Similarly important is the legacy of two of Kahlo and Rivera’s patrons, Jacques and Natasha Gelman. The Gelmans became Mexican citizens in 1942 and began amassing Mexican art, sustaining a growing collection of Mexican modernists, like Kahlo and Rivera (with whom they became close friends), as well as their compatriots Rufino Tamayo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and others. Their unparalleled collection shows the richness of Mexican art through painting, drawing, photography, and film.

Nov 2 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
6th Annual Paderewski Piano Festival - Tomasz Ritter (Poland) @ Daniels Auditorium - North Carolina Museum of History

The Sixth Annual Ignacy Jan Paderewski Festival of Raleigh

The Sixth Annual Paderewski Festival of Raleigh will take place on October 20-22 and November 2,3,9, and 10, 2019, the 100th anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles with Germany and the Treaty of Saint Germain with Austria, which established the newly independent Polish state internationally. The Sixth Festival features six performances by five Polish, Italian, and American pianists.

The Festival honors Ignacy Jan Paderewski, who played a prominent role on the international diplomatic stage during World War I and contributed significantly to the re-establishment of Poland as a sovereign state.

Paderewski played three times in Raleigh (January 23, 1917; November 23, 1923; April 28, 1939) and once in Durham (January 8, 1931). The appearance in Durham had been scheduled for Raleigh, but a fire destroyed the Raleigh Municipal Auditorium only a few weeks before. The concert was transferred to the newly constructed Page Auditorium at Duke and constituted the first major concert there.

Paderewski had in Raleigh a personal friend in the remarkable person of Mary Lee Swann McMillan, who had been the secretary to his wife, Helena Paderewska, for almost four years from 1915 through 1918.
