“An adventure that leads us through foreign lands, colored by painting, drawing, photography and installation."
Juan Darío Restrepo Figueroa
Guest Curator


The FEMSA Art Collection is comprised of works of art from seventeen countries. A selection representing eleven of those countries (Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay) is currently on display at the Museum.

The exhibition gathers the work of forty artists, and, instead of proposing complicated theories, reinterpretations or curatorial gimmicks, it suggests a quiet trip across the artistic geography of our continent.

The selection also seeks to contrast the works of masters who are renowned among our audiences with other artists less visible in the collective imagination. Here, the artwork is the protagonist.

Going back to the premise raised by the art historian Ivonne Pini, we avoided dogmatic generalizations about the idea of "self", and rather promoted the characteristics of the various proposals made in each of the works displayed, in order to glimpse the notions outlined by artists in search of that elusive sense of belonging in our journey through the art in Latin America.
