Art and learning about new cultures come together at the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum from

Sept. 15, 2013-Jan. 5, 2014.

The Mexico-themed exhibition called “Mexico Inside Out: Themes in Art since 1990” will be on display starting tomorrow 8.15-10 a.m. with a fresh breakfast served at 8.15. Afterward, the museum’s curator Andrea Karnes will give a guided tour and answer any questions. For more information, please contact kendal@themodern.org or 817-840-2167.

The exhibition is one of the largest of its kind worldwide and is believed to be the first in the North Texas area. The artwork will focus on over a decade of contemporary art of Central Mexico and Mexico City from the 1990s to the present.

Organized by Karnes, the exhibition features approximately 60 works by 23 artists who explore aspects of the country’s complex sociopolitical climate. The artists in “Inside Out” tackle issues regarding borders, violence, corruption, economic and civic institutions, and revolution. While they investigate these regional and national issues, they also are engaged firmly with similar concerns and impulses that are universal. As indicated in the title, “Inside” refers to local and “Out” to global issues.

“Inside Out” will feature the most highly sought after artists from Mexico working together with up and coming artists. The artwork ranges from paintings, sculptures and videos to photography, collages and drawings. This is a unique opportunity to learn more information on lifestyles in Mexico through the eyes of these inspiring artists. Admission is $10 for the general entrance and only $4 with a valid TWU Student ID card.
