Las implicaciones de la imagen

Catalog of the exhibition Las Implicaciones de la Imagen presented in Museo de Arte de Sinaola, Culiacán, Mexico, in March, 2006; in Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Artes, Mexico City, Mexico from April 12, 2008 to June 28, 2008; in Capilla del Arte in the Universidad de las Américas and Galería de Arte del Palacio Municipal, Puebla, Mexico from October 10, 2009 to January 10, 2010.

The exhibition, curated by Taiyana Pimentel, it is a review of the collection, which has wide and malleable margins in relation to a strictly historical perspective. The main axis that structures the criteria for the acquisition of artworks is current art production, even if —at times— it also includes works coming from processes associated to modernity. Historical photography is an example of this, as a kind of production that shapes the background of contemporary art. That is why the genealogical position that shapes the collection is the point of departure for the curatorial proposal.

This publication was winner of  50 books/50 covers, 2014.
