The flower, addressed as a substantive part of the Mexican identity, can be seen and felt through more than 200 images that make up the catalog of the exhibition “The Flower in Mexican Culture”, which was presented at the Regional Museum of Anthropology “Palacio Cantón” in 2017 and now it is being showcased in this catalog that features the photographs of the pieces that integrated it, but also to read the texts that accompany it and speak of their origin and material with which they were made.
The catalog was presented on July 18, by José Enrique Ortiz Lanz, National Coordinator of Museums and Exhibitions of INAH, and Giovana Jaspersen, director of the Regional Museum of Anthropology of Yucatan “Palacio Cantón”.
It shows the importance of preserving the printed memory of the exhibition and, at the same time, it makes it possible to publicize INAH projects that promote the country’s cultural heritage.
This copy becomes an element of consultation that captures the way to see one of the most recognized elements of Mexican identity.
The book includes more than 200 images of different works of art, paintings, sculptures, lithographies, wax and carved ivory, textiles and other forms of contemporary popular art, which were part of the exhibition entitled “The flower in Mexican culture“.
The speakers recalled that this sample came from 30 collections and public and private museums, from 16 states of the country that give relevance to the flower in art, culture and its function in nature, as well as the richness and variety of its diverse representations.
The catalog features high quality images divided into five thematic axes which are:
- “The flower, metaphor of the precious”
- “The flower, description of the unknown”
- “The flower, allegory of the divine”
- “The flower, symbol of the beautiful”
- “The flower, synthesis of the diverse”
There are three introductory texts of the catalog as a presentation that were written by María Cristina García Cepeda, Secretary of Culture; Diego Prieto Hernández, general director of INAH; and Antonio Saborit, director of the National Museum of Anthropology.
The exhibition called: “The flower in Mexican culture” stood out for being the first to be opened in a museum outside Mexico City, at Palacio Canton from July to November 2017; later, it was moved to the Guadalupe Museum in Zacatecas and finally, to the Temporary Exhibitions Room of the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City.
It had a total of 348,247 attendees in the three venues.
The price of the catalog is $ 500 pesos.
