Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City
Ana Ruiz Aguirre
The Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City was designed by internationally renowned Mexican architect Luis Barragán. I visited this impressive architectural feat during my ongoing MITACS-funded trip to Mexico City, undertaken with the objective to access archival collections regarding exhibitions of Cuban visual art displayed in Mexico. The Centro Nacional houses not only arts schools, but also national archival collections and research centres. The exhibition files held in these collections are central to the development of my doctoral research project at Queen's, entitled "Twenty Years of Cultural Diplomacy: Cuban Visual Art Exhibitions in North America, 1989-2014."
