Focusing on art as a cultural index, Where Do We Go From Here? Selections from La Colección Jumex posits art as aesthetic experience as well as a form of knowledge. As a record of its cultural origins and the contexts in which it operates, contemporary art as a discipline has a critical potential to examine society, call attention to issues, and reflect upon itself as it probes forms and themes. Where Do We Go From Here? refers to our particular times of challenge, to our uncertain future, even as it informs us of the interdisciplinary and global nature of contemporary life. Where Do We Go From Here? asserts and upholds the capacity of art to articulate central aspects of culture poetically and poignantly and, at times, even humorously.
