Guayaquil – From today until January 31, the Municipal Museum is the setting for an exhibition with a special selection of works that have been winners throughout the history of the July Salon. This exhibition is part of the activities carried out by the institution for the 110 years of creation of this space, in Sucre between Pedro Carbo and Chile.
Works of characters, now become renowned artists and whose work is necessary to review for the study of the history of Ecuadorian art of the twentieth century, are part of this exhibition. Thus, names like Theo Constante, Enrique Tábara, Felix Aráuz, Humberto Moré, Luis Miranda, Jorge Velarde, Tomás Ochoa, Marco Alvarado, among others, take a walk in this series that opens its doors to the public from Tuesday to Saturday 08:30 to 17:30.
“Just as in contemporary art, in the history of the July Salon, finding an absolute predominant style is not possible, but we can witness the aesthetic diversity of movements, trends, currents, as well as the thematic richness in the proposals that are born of pre-Columbianism, the abstract, surrealism, neo-Cubism and symbolism, “says the entity.
He adds that the Julio Salon is also a testimony of generational change and their preferences in artistic procedures; “Thus we show how the predominance of oil and canvas have given way to experimentation with new procedures and materials”. (I)
