About This Event
This exhibition of selected works from the Isabel and Agustín Coppel Collection attempts to explore Mexican contemporary art from a point of view that simultaneously underlines the intense dialogue with its canonical history and the international landscape to which it also belongs. No artist is isolated from the global dynamics that fuel the contemporary art of our time. The Isabel and Agustín Coppel Collection includes not only impressive examples by today’s leading Mexican artists, but also their peers from Latin America, Europe, and the United States including Ana Mendieta. Gordon Matta Clark and Ed Ruscha.
Mexico: Expected / Unexpected was initially curated by Carlos Basualdo and Mónica Amor for the Maison Rouge in Paris. The Isabel and Agustín Coppel Collection is one of Mexico’s most comprehensive contemporary art collections.
