Atl, Dr., 1875-1964 -- Exhibitions.
"We present the artwork of one of the best Mexican landscape painters, Gerardo Murillo, better known as Dr. Atl (1875-1964), who was at the same time the promoter of mural-making and of the vanguards that marked the history of Mexican art. This publication encompasses seven decades that attest to the artistic evolution of Dr. Atl and his contributions to the modern art of Mexico; it shows his portraits, self-portraits, landscapes and sky-landscapes; the latter have a very unique inner movement and chromatic quality, which result of the use of the curvilinear perspective and the so-called Alt colors by the artist. Thanks to them the volcanoes Popocatépetl, Iztaccíhuatl y Paricutín emerge from the paintings as protagonists whose life pumps over the canvas."--Publisher's website.

An exhibition that includes works by modern and contemporary artists, as well as works and documents of historical value. The sample is comprised of drawings, paintings, installations, video and photography. Despite the differences between the media and time period in which these works were produced, all converge in a peculiar relationship with the past and human evolution. Far from considering history as a collection of facts stored in our memory, the exhibition "Olinka, or where movement is created" (inspired in a project of Dr. Atl from the 1940's, which envisioned the construction of an international city of culture called Olinka), imagines history as an unstable territory, in constant movement, with the possibility to materialize, evoked or reinterpreted it. Artist included in the exhibition: Dr. Atl, Nairy Baghramian, Ross Birrell and David Harding, Mariana Castillo Deball, Kate Davis, Thea Djordjadze, Susan Hiller, Nahui Olin, Paulina Olowska, Manuel Rodríguez Lozano, Vivian Suter, Tercerunquinto, Danh Vo and Elisabeth Wild.
