The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO) presents El mañana ya estuvo aquí [Tomorrow was already here], a retrospective exhibition organized by the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City that shows the future of the visions of modernity by artists such as Henry Moore, Roberto Matta, Steve McQueen and Jean Dubuffet, who dealt with history as a form of understanding the present and creating an imaginary future that invokes a spectrum of utopia.
El mañana ya estuvo aquí includes works from the collection of the Museo Tamayo created in the 1950s, 1960s and the early 1970s that offer distinct versions of modernity. The pieces strike up a dialogue with today’s works that reflect the growing interest of the history of art and its attention to the perception of the future that it had in those years.
