As reported by The Art Newspaper, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is looking to enlarge its Latin American art collection. The museum has created a new endowed curatorial post, the Jorge Baldor Curator of Latin American Art, currently open for applications. It has also made significant new acquisitions of art from the region, from a 17th-century Peruvian carpet to artworks by Mexican artists Miguel Covarrubias, José Clemente Orozco and Diego Rivera, and Chilean artist Roberto Matta.

Major exhibition exploring 50 years of Mexican modern art. Following its showing at the Grand Palais, Paris, this is the exhibition’s only US venue. The result of a combined cultural endeavour between Mexico and France, the exhibition features circa 200 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and films documenting Mexico’s artistic Renaissance during the first half of the 20th century. Works by the titans of Mexican Modernism are shown alongside those by lesser-known pioneers, including a number of rarely seen works by female artists. Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, Ángel Zárraga, Tina Modotti, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, among others, are on display.
