Diego Rivera Lectures on Architecture and Painting

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

The Ministry of Culture released two audios of Diego Rivera’s lectures dating back to 1955

The Mexican Ministry of Culture has released a couple of recordings of lectures by Diego Rivera that he gave in 1955. In these, he addresses an analysis of architecture and values in plastic art, as well as reflections on painting.

Moreover, the audios have been rescued through a sound project by the National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature. Among these, a couple belonging to lectures given by muralist and painter Diego Rivera were recently published.

These audios were rescued by the Directorate of Architecture and Conservation of the Real Estate Artistic Heritage and the National Phonoteque. Furthermore, they were part of a project developed in 1954 when Miguel Alvarez Acosta became director of INBAL.

At that time, Diego Rivera’s participation consisted of two talks at the National College: “A Call Young Architecture, Young Painting and Young Sculpture”and the second one,“New Values in Visual Arts.”

In the first one, he made a theoretical and practical analysis of the work of the architect José Luis Hernández Mendosa. While in the latter, he focused on reflecting on Cubism and modern architecture.

These recordings remained in physical format until the General Subdirectory of Artistic Heritage unveiled them after the edition of the book Diego Rivera. Lively voice, with the brush and pen by the Colegio de México.

Thus, the original recordings are available to anyone interested in the topics addressed. Now, thanks to a process of digitizing, these recordings are available to the public.
