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.

Racial Equity Cohort Learning Series #2 – Foundations in Internalized Racism @ ReCity Network
Jan 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Racial Equity Cohort Learning Series #2 - Foundations in Internalized Racism @ ReCity Network

Our Foundations in Racial Equity workshop is focused on building social, political, historical and economic context around the construction of race, and help participants build a systemic, institutional and cultural analysis of racialized outcomes, all through the lens of our own racial identities, experiences, and encounters. This introductory workshop is a strongly recommended prerequisite for our other workshops.

Our Foundations in Internalized Racism workshop pushes participants to examine their own socialization and the unconscious norms, assumptions, and biases that have been ingrained in us, that perpetuate racism and uphold the system has it was designed. We will interrogate our own lived experiences and identities, build community and devise strategies for deconstructing Internalized Racial Superiority and Internalized Racial Oppression through racial identity caucusing, all while building our capacity to work towards racial equity in the spaces we occupy.

Our Decentering White Supremacy Culture workshop focuses on naming, interrogating, and challenging white supremacy as a socio-political system of domination that, while rendered invisible, controls all facets of what is deemed “normal” and “correct” in our society and in our workplaces, more specifically. Using a racial equity lens developed in sessions 1 & 2, we will define the attributes of whites supremacy culture, identify our roles as perpetrators/co-conspirators in upholding white supremacy culture as the “norm” in our environments, and begin developing strategies for decentering white supremacy culture and creating space for alternative ways of being and operating.
