In parallel to the exhibit “Challenges and Demands. Contemporary Art in FEMSA Collection,” we had a roundtable with renowned artists on contemporary art in Mexico.
Oaxaca de Juárez’ Museo de los Pintores Oaxaqueños hosted the exhibit and the conversation with artists Emilio Chapela and Pablo Rasgado.
Visiting a museum and engaging in a direct contact with art – in any of its expressions - gives humans an experience that connects them with their own essence, inviting them to reflection. The exhibit “Challenges and Demands. Contemporary Art in FEMSA Collection” is the perfect example; as part of the activities of FEMSA Collection’s Educational Program, we had a roundtable with artists Emilio Chapela and Pablo Rasgado. The conversation took place on August 14 at Oaxaca de Juarez’ Museo de los Pintores Oaxaqueños, which hosted the exhibit.
During this activity, we had a conversation in regards to art in Mexico; the main topic was “Reflections in regards to contemporary art,” looking to generate a dialogue with the community about current processes for art production.
The exhibit was opened to the public from 22 May until 16 August 2015; it welcomed close to 5,185 people, who were able to appreciate the 64 works of art created by renowned artists of Mexico and Latin America.
FEMSA Collection consistently meets its goal of promoting education by communicating and strengthening culture and art.
