On view through October 6, 2024
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO)
Nuevo León, Monterrey, Mexico

The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO) is hosting the exhibition Proscenios Literarios (Literary Prosceniums), the first career review of artist Jorge Méndez Blake, whose production has stood out on the national and international scenes. Under the curatorship of Victor Palacios, the original exhibition of 59 works was produced by the Museo Cabañas, in Guadalajara, and financed by EFIARTES in 2023 through resources granted by the company Tracsa.

As part of MARCO’s institutional collaboration strategies, the exhibition is shown in Monterrey in an expanded version, with 103 works on display, distributed mostly in galleries 1 to 4 on the Ground Floor; part of the production will also be exhibited outside the galleries. The complete neon series Biblioteca completa (Complete Library) (2021-2023), with 17 works added to number a 30-piece project, will be shown on the walls of the Central Patio.
