The exhibition of Mexican muralists should have opened in Santiago (Chile) on September 13, 1973 as a proof of solidarity and friendship between Mexico and Chile. However, the opening was cancelled following the military coup of General Augusto Pinochet on September 11.
Thus, the works by three great Mexican muralists José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros were taken out from Chile in the same Aeromexico’s plane in which Allende’s widow and daughters fled and the collection returned to the Mexican museums it had come from.
Since then this exhibition became la exposición pendiente (the pending exhibition).
The exhibition México “La Mostra Sospesa” – Orozco, Rivera, Siqueiros” will open in Bologna, at Palazzo Fava, on October 19, 2017: sixty-eight works among the most important paintings of great Mexican muralism, recognized as national Mexican heritage and belonging to the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, the Museo Nacional de Arte, and the Museo de Veracruz.
At Palazzo Fava, from October 19, 2017 to February 18, 2018.
