A temporary commission for the Museo Jumex, Michael Lin’s Mariposa B1-09 is a
hand-painted floor that extends in excess of 1,300 square meters across the museum’s
plaza and through the building’s ground floor. The work is based on a traditional
tablecloth design found in Mexico that echoes similar textiles from the artist’s native
Taiwan. The painting acts as a physical and metaphorical stage on which the interplay
of popular cultural with art and its institutions is displayed.
Exhibition organized by Kit Hammonds, Chief Curator, and María Emilia Fernández,
Curatorial Assistant, Museo Jumex.
With additional support of Comex.
