Surrealismo y abstracción, dos mundos paralelos, will be held at the Museo Pape from August 14 until December 3, in Monclova, Coahuila. The exhibition celebrates the museum’s 40th anniversary.

Curated by M. María Faernanda Matos Moctezuma, the show includes a selection of works that showcase two opposing Art movements born in Europe after WWI, and their practice in Mexico starting from the 1950s. The arrival of European surrealists and the rupture between Mexican artists from local movements, opened paths that will be explored at the exhibition, together with the expressions that marked the start of a new millenium.
