Summary note:
The book includes a selection of 75 pieces, including paintings, drawings, photographs and documents belonging to the multidisciplinary and controversial artist Dr. Atl (Gerardo Murillo, b. Guadalajara, Mexico 1875-1964). Atl was a man of multiple talents. His literary texts and amateur explorations in geology and astronomy generated epistemological synergies with his painting, by zeroing in on a specific object of study: the fascinating metamorphosis of the planetœs lithosphere and atmosphere, in the diminutive territory circumscribed by the Mexican highlands. In the visual culture of Mexican landscape, Dr. Atl was just as important in the twentieth century, as José María Velasco in the nineteenth.ʺ --Page 15. The book also pays posthumous tribute to author and curator Carlos Ashida Cueto (b. Mexico 1955-2015).
Notes:
The book "Dr. Atl, Rotación Cósmica" compiles the artwork exhibited in the homonymous exhibition held Nov. 2014 to Feb. 2015 at the Centro Cultural Cabañas in Guadalajara Jalisco, México.
