From 12 September through 10 November de 2012, the Mexican Embassy in Portugal, presents the collective exhibition "Mitos y Mitotes."
In collaboration with the Colectivo Cultural Vallarta (city Puerto Vallarta, Mexico) and commissioned by Maria José Zorrilla, the exhibition gathers the artwork of 26 artists working in different mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography and sound landscape. Photos of the old and recent history of the city, accompany the exhibition and serve as support to the works presented by the artists.
"Mitos y Mitotes" showcases the plurality evident in the cultural diversity of a city with nearly 161 years of existence, named after Ignacio Vallarta, a former governor of Jalisco. A city that differs itself from the majority of Mexican cities, it's during the 1960s and early 1970s that Puerto Vallarta starts its trajectory toward becoming a major resort destination.
The exhibition can be visited Monday through Friday, from 9h00 to 18h00. Free admitance.
The Mexican Embassy in Portugal is located in Lisbon, at Estrada de Monsanto, 78.
