ABCA 2016
The year 2016 brings important things for the Brazilian Association of Art Critics (ABCA). In addition to the traditional and well-deserved recognition of the professionals selected by the Association members dispersed throughout Brazil, a new board chaired by María Amélia Bulhões took over in January for the 2016-2018 period.
Anish Kapoor in D.F.
Eagerly anticipated by the Mexican public, the exhibition titled “Archeology, Biology,” is a traveling show, already presented in many countries, which surveys the artistic trajectory of British Indian artist Anish Kapoor. After the long lines formed outside the Museo Tamayo by people waiting to snap a selfie in the exhibition of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, this new show was also expected to generate a similar response by the public to museum products (if it is possible to call them that way)
Carlos Motta. Histories for the Future

Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better
Julieta González, interim Director and Chief Curator at Museo Jumex interviews Nat Trotman, curator of "Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better"

Nan Trotman talks briefly about the history of the artists, the years they worked in collaboration, and their shared interest in working with everyday subjects. An interest that, through their use of common objects, reconfigurations, and humor, seeks to blur the distinction between “high” and “low” culture in a creative way, inviting us to question what we take for granted, our time investments, the meaning of work, and the objects around us.

"Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better" was previously seen at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, and was especially reformulated for Museo Jumex. This is one of the challenges faced by Trotman, who was able to find a balance and establish a dialog between Museo Jumex’s three levels and the works on exhibit.
