30.JAN. - 10.MAY.2020 GALLERY 3

Lina Bo Bardi: Habitat addresses the life, work, and legacy of the Italo-Brazilian architect, designer, curator, museum director, writer, editor, and set designer. Through a selection of drawings, photographs, and original furniture designs, the exhibition presents her work as a practice that modified the canon of modern architecture in Brazil and the educational role of the museum by incorporating other ideas acquired by her approach to popular culture. Bo Bardi is known internationally for the design of the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (1968) and SESC Pompéia (1982), a leisure center for workers in the same city.

Exhibition organized by Julieta González, independent curator; José Esparza Chong Cuy, Executive Director and Chief Curator at Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York; and Tomás Toledo, Chief Curator at MASP.

Coordinated at Museo Jumex by Cindy Peña, Curatorial Assistant, Museo Jumex.

04.FEB. - 28.JUN.2020

A temporary commission for Museo Jumex, Michael Lin’s Mariposa B1-09 is a hand-painted floor extending in excess of 1300 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 are displayed.

The exhibition is organized by Kit Hammonds, Chief Curator and María Emilia Fernández, Curatorial Assistant, Museo Jumex.

Exhibition organized by Ana Elena Mallet, independent curator.
