Highlights Latin American interpretations of artistic styles from cubism and surrealism to constructivism and abstraction. The FEMSA Collection, devoted to modern and contemporary art from Latin America provides an excellent resource from which to examine the multifarious nature of the art by Latin American artists that have often instigated, ignited, and cross fertilized some of the twentieth century's most far reaching and significant artistic movements and practices. Beyond the Labyrinth suggests the rich and dynamic role artists from Latin America have played in the discourse and development of key aspects of modernism, and their ever growing presence in the contemporary art field on a global stage.
