MEXICO CITY.- A hundred historical objects related to the revolutionary leader Emiliano Zapata; 30 large format photographs that capture the Morelos state landscape, as well as contemporary artwork related to him integrate the exhibition that opened on July 6th 2010, “Zapata en Morelos” at the National Museum of History “Castillo de Chapultepec” (MNH).

The exhibition shows the geography transformed by the Revolution, “as a way to get even with the people that made the Revolution”, and so, images of contemporary Morelos state are displayed, a hundred years after the movement.

During the visit to the press around the exhibition organized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the Government of the State of Morelos, details of the show were made known, which will be open until August 2010 and includes a video with 60 images of Emiliano Zapata’s face, created by artists of different trends.

The show is part of the commemoration of the Centennial of the Revolution and the Bicentennial of the Independence of Mexico, and it was presented by the national coordinator of Museums and Exhibitions, Lourdes Herrasti, the director of the National Museum of History, and curator of the exhibition, Salvador Rueda and the Morelos State Tourism secretary, Hugo Salgado.

Historian Salvador Rueda remarked that during years historians have filled up pages of specialized books regarding Zapatismo, but simple research about the theme appeared difficult, to recover the event in its human aspect, being this the novelty of the exhibition.

Among important items exhibited stands out the presidential chair that he never wanted to use, and the saddle he was using when he was shot, as well as 2 unpublished pictures, one of him as a child, and other of his face.

The exhibition is complemented with a display of objects used in Charreria, a discipline practiced by Zapata. Both will be open during July and August 2010, Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 to 17:00 hours at the National Museum of History “Castillo de Chapultepec”.
