The catalog “Julio Galán: A rabbit split in half” is edited by the Tamayo Museum and published by Editorial RM. It not only documents the homonymous exhibition presented at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, curated by Magalí Arriola, but also offers a new perspective on the artistic endeavors of Julio Galán (Múzquiz, 1959 – Monterrey, 2006).
As there has been no comprehensive publication of Galán’s work in the past fifteen years, the outcome of this project is a book that re- contextualizes his paintings from a contemporary perspective. “Julio Galan. A Rabbit Split in Half” will include the first biographical essay on Galán ever published, authored by Teresa Eckman, PhD; a curatorial essay by Magali Arriola, curator of the show and director of Museo Tamayo; and a glossary on Galan’s iconography penned by Mexican writer Pablo Soler Frost, compiling some of his most outstanding works, archive images, author photographs and contemporary photographs from the exhibition at the Tamayo Museum (2022).
