Although we cannot physically experience several art venues, enjoying the wide museum corridors is one of the first activities to be allowed thanks to the fact that there is almost no contact with other people. Believe it or not, this months will be wonderful for culture in Mexico with great exhibitions and visits to the galleries that we admire so much. Our passion for art is endless, that is why we are introducing you to 5 museums and exhibitions loved by FlowSuites.
Since September 2, the National Museum of Art has opened its doors again to the public to enjoy a little bit of José María Velasco’s works (a permanent exhibition). It is located in the historic center of Mexico City, in the Manuel Tolsá Square, in a building marked with number 8 of Tacuba Street. It houses a representative collection of Mexican art, from the viceregal era to the 1950s.
The Amedeo Modigliani exhibition at Bellas Artes
We had been waiting for this exhibition since the beginning of last year, but unfortunately it had to be put on hold until it was safe to attend. From September to December, the grandiose works of the Italian painter Amedeo Midigliani (Livorno 1884 – Paris 1920) will be on display at the palace, presenting for the first time in Mexico a wide selection of his pictorial work, in the company of outstanding members of the Paris School – such as Chaim Soutine, Moise Kisling and Suzanne Valadon – with works from the prestigious Jonas Netter Collection.
If you missed visiting this beautiful museum located in Polanco and enjoying Rodin’s sculptures, as well as a couple of Renoir’s jewels and even small treasures from the viceroyalty of New Spain, then you can’t miss the tour. What we love about this museum is the variety of works, from photography to small portraits from various parts of the world. The best thing is that you can take pictures either inside or outside the facilities.
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Museum
More than the opening of this museum, the owners had the creativity to organize small exclusive tours of no more than one hour, an initiative of Museos Uno en Uno. The idea is to enter either alone or as a couple and intimately enjoy the beautiful and famous Casa Azul. They are also starting to do the normal tours with all the security measures, so no re-entry is allowed (for the moment).
Located in one of the most beautiful and oldest neighborhoods in Mexico City, the Casa Azul was converted into a museum in 1958, four years after the painter’s death. Today it is one of the most famous museums in the Mexican capital.
Mexico City Museum
If you want to enjoy the beauty of the Historical Center and witness the talent of our artists, then this museum is ideal for you and your partner. The museum opened again and since then they have implemented the necessary measures to enjoy each floor. The Mexico City Museum has temporary exhibitions showing the work of plastic artists who express, through their colors and techniques, the multiple ways of looking and feeling Mexico City; the Clausell Site and Studio Museum, where you can permanently visit recreations of some of the rooms of the Counts of Calimaya, such as the chapel, the sacristy and the music room and studio of Joaquín Clausell; and the Jaime Torres Bodet Library.
