NAMOC International Exchange Series Exhibition: "The Art from National Art Museum of China" series goes into Mexico
“The Art from National Art Museum of China” series exhibition is an important inter-governmental cultural exchange project between China and Mexico. It is jointly sponsored by the National Art Museum of China and Mexico foreign ministry and Veracruz state cultural affairs bureau. From October to December 2014, Diego Rivera: Pride of Mexico was held successfully in NAMOC. The 34 pieces of works presented an all-round display of the process of artistic creation and artistic features of Diego Rivera, a most important artist of Mexico. The exhibition gained great popularity among Chinese audiences. Mexico president Enrique Pena Nieto greeted NAMOC curator Wu Weishan with a firm handshake in a meeting, thanking NAMOC for the great contribution in China-Mexico cultural exchange. As a return visit, NAMOC elaborately planned the large-scale Chinese contemporary art exhibition and folk art exhibition, designed to help Mexican people understand the great social changes and progress in China in the era of reform and opening up, have a taste of the great vitality of Chinese art, and feel about the energy and expressive force of Chinese traditional folk art. Since they were unveiled on July 8, 2015, the exhibitions attracted numerous audiences, and won high praise of Mexican people from various walks of life.
