Siqueiros: Master Mexican muralist goes to Argentina
David Alfaro Siqueiros, one of the three greatest Mexican muralists, is the focal point in a new exhibition at Argentina's Bicentenary Museum. Siqueiros painted 'Ejercicio Plástico' (Plastis Exercise) in Argentina in 1933, and the piece was rescued through Mexican and Argentine government efforts. The artists gaze dominates the Museum's central passage, which stands next to the 'Casa Rosada' (Pink House) in Buenos Aires.
