This month Museo Jumex in Mexico City marks its tenth anniversary. The museum has become internationally recognised as one of the most important contemporary art institutions in Mexico with a wide range of temporary exhibitions and an engaged public programme. To mark the occasion a new exhibition entitled “Todo se vuelve más ligero” (Everything Becomes Lighter) will showcase work from the Jumex Collection, curated by Lisa Phillips, Director of the New Museum in New York.
The building presented the opportunity to define the Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo’s institutional and representational identity in a new location in the centre of the city. With its distinctive sawtooth roof, the permeable pavilion structure asserts its civic presence within an eclectic urban setting, opening onto a newly created plaza that is often used for installations.
