Lagniappe for Mexico City
WTR's Ernie Exhibit provides information on special current exhibitions for our featured museums such as: Museo de Arte Moderno
Now to August 5, 2018 see Black Light
The exhibition consists of 40 artists and 45 works distributed in 4 thematic nuclei: "Dark Night of Souls", in allusion to introspective religious concepts of fatality and spiritual revelation; "Philosophical awakenings of the color", that approaches references on the light and the darkness through some chromatic and symbolic values with which each culture has nourished its knowledge; "Optics and pigment" that, from the physical point of view, reviews the interest of the artists on the material resource of the pigment and the optical perception of the colors as a subject in itself, to end with "Universes and poetics", whose sustenance remits to the space of the universe and to the poetic and literary inspirations of the astronomical phenomenon of day-night duality.
