The design presented the exhibit in two fields, the first was marked by a didactic sense. In the second, Tamayo’s work was exhibited outside a chronological or lineal structure, in order to accomplish a thematic distribution divided into three areas: one related to customs or indigenist, another lyrical and another scenographic, all with the objective of showing the different opinions on the Tamayo’s work on watercolor and gouache from 1926 to 1959.

The purpose of this sample of works on paper was to place the spectator face to face with the work, and nourish the reflection and discussion on a not well studied period of the work of one Mexico’s greatest artists.
