Today you have a date with the Rufino Tamayo Photography Exhibition Memorias de San Miguel de Allende, which shows a new face of the enormous talent for visual arts that kept the internationally recognized Mexican modernist painter.
The Tamayo Archive documents the heritage of master Rufino Tamayo. His stock features newspapers, documents and photographs that serve as testimony of the life and work of the painter, allowing to re-construct his existence through prints that reveal details of his reality, linking us to his past.
The images shown in this exhibition are part of his photography archive. The expansions and reproductions of stereoscopic photographs that the painter realized are a chronicle of the brief period that the Tamayo family lived in the house “La Gloria” in San Miguel de Allende.
The eye of the master captured the vernacular architecture, landscape and people of the place, portraying the daily essence of the Mexican with a personal aesthetic. In these photographs we appreciate the composition of the artist and a poetic realism that evokes the Mexico of yesterday.
This exhibition will be at locale 7-A at Fábrica La Aurora starting at 17:30 hrs.
