3 Chetumal artists featured in exhibit at Mexican Institute

The Mexican Embassy is not only offering scholarships, today it launched a new artistic exhibit. The exhibition includes various drawings made by three young artists – Mireya Gomez, Mariana Montes and Victor Manuel Garcia – of the School of Fine and Visual Arts in Quintana Roo, Mexico. The pieces showcase the visual perspective of the artists and the techniques used to depict various aspects of human body. Entitled “Graphic Coincidences,” the exhibit was presented back in 2013 at the Museum of the Mayan Culture in Chetumal and tonight it opened at seven p.m. at the Institute of Mexico in Belize City as a part of the Mexican Embassy’s 2014 Cultural Exchange Program. Press Officer, Marcelino Miranda, says that the public is invited to view the exhibit free of cost.

“As the title of this exhibition, Graphic Coincidences, the artists want to show the way they have coincided in looking at the human body and how they expressed it in different ways. As the public will see, the human body is presented in different ways because what they want is that even if they coincided in the subject, they have different perspective on the human body and that is something that is interesting. What they also want is to share their views—not only about the human body, but the different techniques…the way in which they are applying those techniques in the pieces of art they are presenting. Tonight, the exhibition is going to be opened; it is opened to the general public—the entrance is free. What the Mexican Embassy wants is to encourage young artists and children to come to the exhibition; this is a family event so everybody is invited. The exhibition is going to open at seven p.m. and as I said, three young artists from Chetumal—two female and one male artist—two of them are going to be present at the exhibition so it is going to be a very good opportunity to interact with them. This exhibition is part of the 2014 cultural program by the Mexican Embassy. In the bigger picture, it is also part of what we want at the Embassy of Mexico to promote a cultural dialogue, an artistic dialogue between Mexico and Belize. What we want to show is what young artists are doing on the other side of the border and to promote not only those Mexican artists in Belize, but also from time to time, Belizean artists in Mexico.”
