The Age of Discrepancy. Visual Art and Culture in Mexico 1968-1997 was the first historical, academic and critical revision of the artistic searches that were produced on the edges of the dominating movements during this period.
The museography was planned from a large L-shaped screen which could be risen not only to present the area of source of information but to offer an opportunity to establish another look, another perspective of the multiple pillars that made up the body of the exhibit.
This was an exhibit that makes key moments in which artists from different generations and from different cultural horizons stand out. While disagreeing with the traditional uses of art and self-critical of their own practices, they set out to transform politics and formally the sense of producing art and questioning the legitimacy of the traditional pillars, the historical functions of art and the abuse of iconography.
