Our Exhibition Philosophy

To us, Mexican culture exists sin fronteras, without borders, and we display artistic expressions from both sides of the border. From the past to the present, the history of Mexico and its people is complex and multi-faceted. This is why the Museum is committed to creating a wide range of exhibitions that present a vibrant and diverse picture of Mexico and its history, as well as of Mexican communities in the United States.
 
From ancient Mesoamerican civilizations to contemporary artistic expression, the National Museum of Mexican Art has a long-standing history of producing unique exhibitions with first-voice scholarship. In fact, 20 exhibitions organized by the Museum have traveled across the United States and Mexico to other museums. By interpreting Mexican history and culture and sharing it with these audiences, we are working to preserve the knowledge and expand people’s appreciation of the Mexican culture.
