CURATOR: Luis Carlos Emerich
MUSEOGRAPHY: Ana María and Teresa Pecanins, who divided Gallery 5 into seven areas reflecting the characteristic themes in Guzmán's painting: nostalgia, the sea portraits, architecture, bathers, civic and religious figures, and physical and psychological pain.

Enrique Guzmán (1952-1986), precursor of the neofigurativism movement which predominated in Mexico in the 80s and 90s, remains a little known figure in this country, and this exhibition, in the retrospective manner, is at once a homage, a reassessment and a close look at the work of the intelligent, visionary artist, whose career was so intense and so brief, whose character irreverent and provocative, and who was so taciturn by nature.



Enrique Guzmán was not only the precursor of the questioning figuration style arising from his formative surroundings, but also in many ways heralded the underlying metaphysical, Dadaist and surrealist reprises in the new figurations and in the so called neoMexicanism of the 80`s, as well as showing the first signs of the neoconceptualisim, objectism and instalationism which have become generalized in Mexican art at the end of this millennium.
