The exhibition is the result of the Fourth Edition of the Bancomer–MACG Program, and will open on January 29 at 19:30h.

The Program is an initiative from BBVA Bancomer Foundation and Carrillo Gil Art Museum, to promote new generations of mexican artists and residents of the country. Since it began, the program has supported 40 new artists through a multidisciplinary scholarship.

The show will be exhibited in the lobby and first floor of the museum with projects from the 10 grant holders: Daniel Aguilar, Antonio Bravo, Cristóbal Gracia, Ulrik López, Noé Martínez, Alicia Medina, Daniel Monroy, Chantal Peñalosa, María Sosa and Omar Vega Macotela.

The 4th edition of the BBVA Bancomer-MACG Program, From Education to the Public, can be understood as a platform consisting of seminars, workshops, and art tutoring at group and personalized levels. Instead of driving individual efforts toward a collective museum exhibition that would seek to establish relationships among the projects, this edition proposes to focus on the structural aspect of a program whose mission and vision consists of training new generations of artists. The title, therefore, is a play-on-words between education [formación] and symbolic form [forma], that is, the museographic shaping of the projects and their public dimension.

The curatorial coordination of the program relied on Mónica Amieva and Willy Kautz. The editorial coordination for the catalog was developed by Erik Beltrán.

The exhibition will remain open until May 22 and will have parallel activities such as the master conference with the curator Charles Esche and the presentation of the catalog with Erik Beltrán. Afterwards, the exhibition will travel to different locations around the country.
