As part of the cultural project “Maratón latino” (Latin Marathon), the Consulate General of Mexico in Shanghai and Miguel de Cervantes Library inaugurate the exhibition of contemporary Mexican art.
The consulate has been collecting these pieces of art since the commemoration of the bicentennial of Mexico’s independence and the centenary of the Mexican Revolution, in 2010. The result is a careful selection of works that come from the donation and support of artists of all disciplines, including painters such as Alexandra Phelps, Ana Queral and Virinia Lizardi. For the first time, part of this great collection leaves its home so that more eyes can appreciate the richness and color of Mexico.
The opening ceremony was presented by Mr. Rolando Garcia, Consul General of Mexico in Shanghai. The coordinator of the collection, Mr. Guillermo Salceda offered a guided tour of the exhibition.
