Avant Garde Networks: Amauta and Latin America

After traveling across Spain and Peru, comes to Mexico this exhibition revolving around Amauta, one of the most influential magazines of the 20the century. Exploring some of the avant garde scenes and debates that marked the Latin American art of the 1920s, essentially in Argentina, Mexico, and Peru.

Thus, the exhibition offers an new panorama of the 1920s, which enables us to recover the intellectual networks that built the very idea of a region with shared cultural ties and political projects. Also, it recovers the figure of José Carlos Mariátegui, his plural glance and radical and heterodox vision that remains until today as a central reference in the cultural discussion in Latin America.

With over 250 works, this exhibition, reunites works that were reproduced in Amauta, most of these works are contemporary with the publication and encompass different media and formats, from painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography, to pieces of popular art and documentation. Here are included works by Ramón Alva de la Canal, Camilo Blas, Norah Borges, Martín Chambi, Julia Codesido, Elena Izcue, Carlos Mérida, César Moro, among others.
