Remember the Path
This publication is a scaled reproduction of what exists as a unique artist’s book. Lugo takes this format and re-elaborates a series of his works, gathered in this volume to create a new narrative. Ludic yet profound, his work deals with the puzzling entanglements between surface and representation, reality and fiction. Writer Jorge Volpi takes this as the trigger for his collaboration, and threads a series of notes throughout the book, which function both as a new fiction of his, as well as a sharp reflection on the subtleties of Lugo’s work.

The Gallery Yusto / Giner exhibits the group show ON PAPER with which they want to emphasize the importance of the paper as a support in contemporary art. The exhibition presents the work of nine international artists that address the expressive possibilities offered by this medium, using their own language, not as pre-work state, but as the work itself, as a defined transcendent entity. The artists in this exhibition come from the United States and Mexico.
Participation in the X Bienal Monterrey FEMSA
The National Centre for the Arts will be showcasing the works conforming the most important contemporary art comptetition in Mexico: The X Bienal Monterrey FEMSA.
Recent Works, at Alfredo Ginocchio Gallery. Mexico City.
As a result of the work done in his latest exhibition (Too late, too far), in this new pieces Lugo further elaborates the almost paradoxical relationship between painting and drawing, which has become the axis of a perhaps transcendental discourse, even while using media such as photo or video.
Presented as multiple subjective experiences, these works are significant findings given in the process of handling the material itself. Without denying the strong interrelationships with 'materic' explorations, Lugo poses here to vindicate a sense of wonder and redimension that which is purely formal from a more human perspective.
