Beyond Muralism: Gerzso, Goeritz, and Friedeberg

Mary-Anne Martin|Fine Art presents an exhibition of paintings, drawings, and sculpture by Gunther Gerzso, Mathias Goeritz, and Pedro Friedeberg, focusing on works from the 1940’s through 1960’s. While Muralism dominated the cultural and artistic scene in Mexico immediately following the Revolution, by mid-century, a younger generation of artists was emerging with distinct creative visions. Some were inspired by time spent in Europe, and others joined a growing circle of expatriate artists and intellectuals. Mixing elements of the Mexican landscape and culture with outside influences, Gerzso, Goeritz, and Friedeberg all broke away from the ideology and social realist aesthetics of muralism to create unique artistic styles, rooted in abstraction.

The exhibition will be on view in the front gallery July 19 – September 24, 2021. Also on view in our back gallery is an installation of works by women artists, including Mary Bauermeister, Leonora Carrington, Elena Climent, Isabel De Obaldía, María Izquierdo, Frida Kahlo, and Remedios Varo.
