The Hunter and the Factory at Fundacón / Coleccón Jumex, Mexico City

The Hunter and the Factory at Fundación / Colección Jumex in Mexico City that brings together works by Doug Aitken, Miguel Calderón, Maurizio Cattelan, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Sam Durant, Olafur Eliasson, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Rodney Graham, Jonathan Hernández & Alberto Baraya, Roman Ondák, Damián Ortega, Fernando Ortega, Ugo Rondinone, Anri Sala, Wolfgang Tillmans, Danh Vo, among others. The Hunter and the Factory, curated by Magalí­ Arriola and Juan Gaitán, “is an exhibition comprising a selection of artworks from La Colección Jumex that combined with other artistic proposals generates an allegorical environment pertaining to the relations that arise between urban spaces and nature, as well as the problems that these generate. In addition to broadly engaging with subjects such as the dystopian character of the contemporary city, the consequences of industrialization, or the lack of cultural and public spaces, this group of artworks also leads us to explore and question the role that an institution, such as Fundación/Colección Jumex, can potentially play in its immediate surrounding, in this case, Ecatepec.”
