Rufino Tamayo: Innovation and Experimentation

(Los Angeles, CA—April 17, 2024) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is presents Rufino Tamayo: Innovation and Experimentation at the Millard Sheets Art Center at the LA County Fair. Rufino Tamayo (1899–1991) was a leading Mexican artist of the 20th century who achieved international acclaim. Drawn exclusively from LACMA’s holdings, and spanning over 60 years of his prolific career, this exhibition focuses on Tamayo’s longstanding interest in prints as a means of exploring new techniques and furthering experimentation. The exhibition is curated by Rachel Kaplan, Associate Curator, Latin American Art, LACMA.

Rufino Tamayo is the second LACMA exhibition to be presented at the Millard Sheets Art Center. In 2023, LACMA announced a collaboration with the LA County Fair, as part of the museum’s ongoing initiative to share its collections with audiences throughout Los Angeles County.
