About us

We are a public and university museum of contemporary art. We form an active part of the Cultural Center project of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). We generate knowledge and critical discourse in partnership with the community. Our collection safeguards and studies work produced since 1952—the year in which the University City campus was inaugurated—by artists based in Mexico.
