It has been a busy first year at the Museo Jumex, and to wrap it up we have a month filled with new exhibitions, performances, publications, lectures, workshops, online projects, grants, and more.


From A to B via C
November 4–8, 2014
This new exhibition and performance by Alexandra Bachzetsis was recently presented at the Museo Jumex’s first-floor gallery, a space that was transformed into a dancer’s studio. This two-part project looked into the transposition of roles and identities through the appropriation of learned and borrowed movements, habits and skills.

Abraham Cruzvillegas: Autoconstrucción
November 14, 2014–February 8, 2015
Organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and curated by Clara Kim, this exhibition is the first major exhibition to showcase and contextualize the dynamic sculptural practice that Cruzvillegas has developed over the last ten years. Abraham Cruzvillegas: Autoconstrucción will be presented simultaneously at the Museo Amparo in Puebla, Mexico.

Danh Vo: الحجارةوادي 
November 14, 2014–February 25, 2015
Curated by Magalí Arriola
Through a series of acquired, manipulated, salvaged and recontextualized objects, Danh Vo explores the history of colonialism and its close ties to the spreading of religion (particularly Catholicism) and the assimilation of cultures, going back, in this case, to the first Arab conquest of Spain and its later transposition to the so-called New World.

Both exhibitions will be accompanied by a series of public programs.


Part messaging service, performance, and app, Somebody is Miranda July’s newest project. We are excited to be participating as an official hotspot along with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The New Museum in New York, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

Recent publications edited by Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo include:

Spanish / English
ISBN: 978-607-8335-07-7

The Permanent Revolution, an Ideological Screwball Comedy is an original play by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes, that is part of Baby Marx, a series that explores the contradictions and tensions between socialism and capitalism with marionettes of key characters such as Leon Trotsky, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Vladimir Lenin, Ernesto “Che” Guevara, Karl Marx, Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Steve Jobs, and Julian Assange. The publication includes the full script as well as texts by Rubén Gallo, Claudio Lomnitz and Chus Martínez that provide a historical and artistic context to this work.

Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin
Spanish / English
ISBN: 978-84-15118-92-3

This publication accompanied the exhibition of the same name that began with the discovery of previously unseen offcuts from the film Catch-22 (1970) in the vaults of Paramount Pictures, and became part archival research, archaeological excavation and montage.

Grants & scholarships
We recently concluded our latest grant application period and during this month we will be organizing over 400 submissions. The results will be announced in December.

The Jumex Grant Program was created to support artists and organizations committed to the production, research and promotion of contemporary art. We support projects related to the following categories: exhibition production, research, publications, public programs, and artist residencies. These grants are awarded annually through an open call.

Recent grant recipients include The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Triple Canopy, Museo Experimental El Eco, Mariana Castillo Deball & Santiago Borja.
