Museo Jumex

Located on a triangular site within the Polanco area of Mexico City, this new museum building exhibits part of one of the largest private collections of contemporary art in Latin America – Colección Jumex – and is part of a wider urban redevelopment. With an informal atmosphere, the building not only houses exhibitions but also provides a platform for discourse and educational activities.

Museo Rufino Tamayo

Museo Rufino Tamayo, located in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park, is principally dedicated to the private collection of artist Rufino Tamayo. The Tamayo collection features over 300 paintings, sculptures and more by artists such as Picasso, Joan Miró and René Magritte.


Lago Algo is a cultural center created and run by CMR and OMR, located in el Bosque de Chapultepec, Mexico City. The architectural project consisted of the re-programming of the existing building which was originally designed by Leónides Guadarrama and Alfonso Ramírez Ponce in 1964 and subsequently renovated by Javier Sordo Madaleno in 1998.
The urban aim of the project is to regenerate the second section of el Bosque de Chapultepec by offering a new public program emphasizing contemporary art and sustainable food, thereby forging new tensions within the existing recreational and cultural infrastructure of the park.


kurimanzutto was founded on August 21st, 1999 in Mexico City by José Kuri, Mónica Manzutto and a group of thirteen artists. Following an idea proposed by Gabriel Orozco, for many years, kurimanzutto did not have a fixed space - for each event or exhibition, the gallery and artists chose a specific location to best suit the project. In 2008, a former timber yard built from 1949 was restored by Alberto Kalach and adapted to house an exhibition space, gallery offices and storeroom. In the fall of 2022, the gallery celebrates 23 years of ongoing efforts towards collaborative cultural exchange.
