Leopoldo Méndez and His Time. Carlos Monsiváis Collection

Museo Nacional de Arte (MUNAL)
Ciudad de México, México
Curaduría: Rafael Barajas y Santiago Pérez
December 2002

The exhibit was presented as a tribute to the figure and career of this prominent Mexican artist one hundred years after his birth.

The selection was organized thematically which allowed Méndez’s work to be appreciated as a dialogue with time and his contemporaries, and showed the incursion of his graphic work in the cinema, his work as an illustrator, draftsman and editor, his thematic and stylistic versatility; and, thus, it motivated the revaluation of the contributions from this graphic artist through one of the most significant archives of Méndez’s work.

The furniture allowed to present both engraving and the engraving plate.
