Julio Galan: A Rabbit Split in Half

Exhibition at Museo Tamayo in Mexico City

Julio Galan: A Rabbit Split in Half


On June 4, 2022, the exhibition “Julio Galan: Un Conejo Partido A La Mitad” (Julio Galan: A Rabbit Split in Half) will be inaugurated at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City. This exhibition will present more than 80 paintings and sculptures from national and international collections. The curatorship was carried out by Magalí Arriola, Director of the Museo Tamayo.

The exhibition addresses the problems of gender and identity in Julio Galan paintings from the perspective of the eighties and nineties of the last century, and revalues its relevance in the current era, posing a critical look at identity fictions and discursive models associated with multiculturalism.

Galan developed a unique plastic language, extremely rich and complex, of which he is the main protagonist and whose originality went unnoticed for a long time in the discourses of contemporary art. ‍

The exhibition will remain open to the public until September 4, 2022.
