Summary note:
Never before exhibited collection of textile works of art that rescues the history of the Taller Nacional de Tapiz (National Tapestry Workshop), presenting 26 tapestries and 15 sketches made by 21 artists including Belkin, Luis Caballero, Felipe Ehrenberg, Marcela Lopez, Carlos Merida and Francisco Toledo, among others. These exhibited pieces were school exercises that were accumulated and now are part of the collection. The exhibition is also a tribute to artist Pedro Pablo Preux (b. Paris, France 1932 - d. Mexico 2011) a tapestry maker who revived the craft as an art form in Europe, then introduced and promotied the concept in Mexico in the 1960's and 1970's. Preux created in 1973 the TNT, and directed it until 1984. Three of his pieces will be exhibited.
