The subject of this paper is a travelling exhibition organized by the National Front of Plastic Arts which toured various cities in the Eastern Bloc between 1955 and 1956. Its objective was to introduce the public to Mexican art, and to promote the socially committed art of the Mexican School and its enduring revolutionary spirit. Attention will be given to two of its venues: Poland and Bulgaria. It is hoped that this focused analysis will provide a deeper understanding of its artistic and political objectives, whilst highlighting the activism of the Mexican School in the context of the Cultural Cold War.
