Mexico City in Art

A Journey of Eight Centuries

An exhibition about the different artistic expressions that, throughout eight centuries, have interpreted and narrated Mexico City through disciplines such as painting, sculpture, literature, architecture, photography, among other expressions. This exhibition reflects the point of view of nine specialists who tackle different artistic periods that have been developed in the city along its history, from Pre-Hispanic and Vice Regal times, to the 19th and 20th centuries, having as its main axis, the caricature, the political propaganda, and the cartography.

The curatorial selection includes about 500 pieces by 200 authors, since the 16th century to our days. Among them are: Cristóbal de Villalpando, Francisco de Zurbarán, Juan Correa, Pedro Gualdi, Manuel Tolsá, Casimiro Castro, José Guadalupe Posada, José María Velasco, Joaquín Clausell, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Gerardo Murillo “Doctor Atl”, Frida Kahlo, Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Vicente Rojo, Daniel Lezama, Francis Alÿs, Carlos Amorales, Abraham Cruzvillegas, and Rafael Lozano Hemmer.
