This work explores the cultural policies in Mexico during Lazaro Cardenas's presidential term through the Departamento Autónomo de Prensa y Propaganda (1937-1939) to influence opinion abroad about Mexico with a comprehensive program of publishing, graphic production, films, plays and art exhibitions. The Cardenas regime used participation in fairs and expositions, particularly in the International Exhibition of Paris of 1937 and the exhibition Twenty Centuries of Mexican Art at the Musem of Modern Art in New York in 1940, to promote a certain image of the country.

A comprehensive look at four transformative decades that put Mexico's modern art on the map In the wake of the 1910-20 Revolution, Mexico emerged as a center of modern art, closely watched around the world. Highlighted are the achievements of the tres grandes (three greats)-Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros-and other renowned figures such as Rufino Tamayo and Frida Kahlo, but the book goes beyond these well-known names to present a fuller picture of the period from 1910 to 1950. Fourteen essays by authors from both the United States and Mexico offer a thorough reassessment of Mexican modernism from multiple perspectives. Some of the texts delve into thematic topics-developments in mural painting, the role of the government in the arts, intersections between modern art and cinema, and the impact of Mexican art in the United States-while others explore specific modernist genres-such as printmaking, photography, and architecture. This beautifully illustrated book offers a comprehensive look at the period that brought Mexico onto the world stage during a period of political upheaval and dramatic social change.
