Diego Rivera (1886-1957) is an artist representing Mexico in the 20th century. In The 1920 s after the Mexican Revolution, Rivera became a representative of the "Mexican mural movement" in order to convey the thought to the common people, and gathered the world's attention. On the other hand, there are excellent works in portraits and manners and customs.
In this exhibition with the National Art Institute (Miron), the Nagoya City Museum of art and the work of the owners of Japan in Japan, and from the early years of his life, he was able to work with him at the same time. He also introduces the attraction of the modern art of Mexico.

In addition to the full cooperation of Mexico, the National Art Institute (Miron), he also exhibits the works and materials of the major artists of the same period. He also introduced the works and materials of Japanese-style painters who had been involved with Rivera. It's a very wide display.
A variety of related events are held together with " Mexico Starting with a lecture at the National Academy of arts, the university of Saitama University, the university of Saitama University, and the " Museum of art " and the " Museum of art " and " the 20th century art ", The most popular "Museum concert" is performed at the basement center hall.
