Banco de México Museum: A New Story

A year ago, on September 24, the Banco de México Museum was inaugurated. We have written the story of our first year together with all our visitors, as a space that reconnects the public with their central bank, in a way that is interactive and dynamic.

The Museum is celebrating its first anniversary with this temporary exhibition focused on the Banco de México Museum commemorative medal, including an iconographic analysis of the medal and a review of the history and functions of the main vault, an architectural feature that was become the Museum’s icon in the aim of transmitting one of our most important messages; Banco de México is your central bank.

Markets from the perspective of contemporary art

The Banco de México Museum presents the exhibit Markets from the Perspective of Contemporary Art, a collective sampling of works that invites us to reflect on the concept of markets as a space for the economic, social and cultural encounters in which we continually interact.

In this exhibit, the Banco de México Museum establishes bridges between the central bank, artists and society. The curation includes 39 works of art in the aim of allowing visitors to perceive through sensory and reflective experience how they are linked to the ecosystem of the markets, from the most immediate contexts in physical and local markets, to global financial markets.

We invite visitors to connect with the various concepts present in any type of market, such as supply, demand and prices, as well as discover the impact of our decisions on the conformation of markets and how these make themselves felt in our daily lives.

Poetics pictured from a distance: ART/BANKNOTES/SHREDDED BANKNOTES/SHAVINGS/DESIGN

In the aim of connecting the visitor to Banco de México’s cultural efforts and highlighting the relationship between financial education and national and international history and culture, we inaugurate the exhibit Poetics pictured from a distance at the Banco de México Museum, comprised of 41 works by visual artists participating in the fourth edition of the program ART/BANKNOTES/SHREDDED BANKNOTES/SHAVINGS/DESIGN 2020.

Begun in 2017 and coordinated by the Directorate of Financial Education and Cultural Affairs, the program consists of an invitation to recognized artists to create pieces of art out of shavings and shredded banknotes, scraps obtained from cuttings and fragments of banknotes with printing defects caused during the manufacturing process.

The curatorship of this exhibit is divided into five sections which consider art’s capacity to connect dream and reality, unite distant worlds and link them collectively. Thus, in the mezzanine of the Banco de México Museum, we present Dialogues in Transformation, offering distinct artistic visions born in the present context, making art a way to process and transform current events.
