MOLAA is proud to present Neomexicanism, an exhibition about a critical tendency in Mexican figurative painting of the 1980s. This groundbreaking exhibition, drawn primarily from the MOLAA Permanent Collection, brings to light a period of art production disenchanted with fixed identities and critical of the official image of Mexicanidad promoted by the state. Neomexicanism features artists including Mónica Castillo, Julio Galán, and Nahum B. Zenil, among others who explore national crisis, the deconstructed self and the hybrid Mexican identity.
