February 1, 2010

At Bozar, the Fine Arts Centre in Brussels, the exhibition ‘Mexican Modernisms’ will open its doors to the general public the forthcoming 11th of February as part of the festival ¡MEXICO! The exhibition is a co-production between BOZAR (BE), A+ (BE) and CONACULTA (MEX) and presents a series of impressive enlarged photographs of 40 canonical architectural pieces build between 1930 and 1985.

In addition, newly produced audiovisual documents review these buildings in their actual context. The curatorial work was realized by José Castillo and PRODUCTORA with additional research by Fernanda Canales and Alejandro Hernández. PRODUCTORA was in charge of the exhibition design.
