The National Museum of Mexican Art believes art is a bridge between communities that creates opportunities for cross-cultural dialogue on topics such as migration. This series will share the stories of immigrants of different nationalities and their life journeys. With these videos, we offer transformative perspectives on immigrant narratives, and yet another way to further engage with the themes and topics presented in our permanent collection.
