Old San Ildefonso College welcomes the 11th FEMSA Monterrey Biennial

For over twenty years, FEMSA Monterrey Biennial has built a prestige and trajectory that defines it as one of the most important artistic events in the country. One of its main goals is to use culture to advance education in the communities where FEMSA operates; thus, it looks to stimulate, disseminate, strengthen, and acknowledge artistic creation in Mexico. The 11th FEMSA Monterrey Biennial moves to Mexico City’s Old San Ildefonso College, where it will continue open until July 26. The 11th Biennial has 65 works from 40 artists. During the past 23 years, 9,897 artists have participated with 24,572 pieces. There are two categories in the event: bidimensional and tridimensional, both of which are eligible for FEMSA’s Grand Acquisition Prize of MX$200,000. The acquired works become part of FEMSA Collection’s cultural wealth. FEMSA Monterrey Biennial is open to the public in Mexico City thanks to the collaboration of FEMSA and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, for its acronym in Spanish), the Old San Ildefonso College, and the National Council for Culture and Arts. Entrance to the exhibit is free for all the employees of FEMSA’s diverse Business Units who only need to show their work ID at the box office.
