TAMAYO | A SOLITARY MEXICAN MODERNIST
National Gallery of Canada
380, promenade Sussex, Ottawa, (Ontario), K1N 9N4
Experience the work of one of Mexico’s masters, Rufino Tamayo (1899–1991). An independent artist who embraced modernity, Tamayo’s style veered from his early depictions of indigenous peoples to playful, colourful, abstract – and sometimes surrealist – later works. Throughout all of his artistic explorations, he remained focused on finding humanity’s place in the universe. Featuring prints and paintings from the collections of the National Institute of Fine Arts, Mexico, as well as an outstanding watercolour from the national collection, this exhibition marks the 25th anniversary of Tamayo’s death. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see works by an artist of constant reinvention.
