MAPping the world through art

Guggenheim UBS MAP

This Global Art Initiative amplifies exposure and access to contemporary art from three culturally dynamic regions: South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and North Africa. MAP exhibitions, customized education programs, artist projects, and online materials help focus attention on vibrant artistic practices in each region and foster lasting relationships among artists, institutions, scholars, and visitors.

Guggenheim honors Latin American art with an exhibition in Mexico City at Jumex Museum

Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America today, organized by Mexican curator Pablo León de la Barra, opens November 19 at Museo Jumex in Mexico City.

Pablo León de la Barra

"Under the same sun can be understood as an attempt to redraw cultural and artistic maps within the Americas, to remove boundaries, and create new relationships among different artistic centers. Its presentation in Mexico City at Museo Jumex is meaningful because, despite the contradictions and conflicts in the histories of the countries that make up Latin America and despite the specificities that must be recognized and honored, we truly al live under the same sun"

Pablo León de La Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America

Our campaign

To celebrate the exhibition at the Jumex Museum in Mexico, we created a thoughtful set of questions reflecting upon themes from the exhibition. These questions presented in our campaign invite the public to engage with the art and artists of Under the Same Sun.

  1. Does art define Latin American identity?
  2. How does Latin American art reflect local communities?
  3. How can Latin American art unite us?
