These Latin American stories are built through denial of symbols, of finding in the constant process of identities. The “Latin American” and what is told from Latin America are two categories that promote multiple-response questions, such as overlapping social and historical essays. The artists of the region in recent generations have been promoting searches for a universalist vocation, either through conceptual language or from the use of audiovisual in its video-artistic, documentary, performance aspects, and its various hybridizations.

“MuFAU” ART.MO is proud to present MuFAU, the first urban art museum in Latin America that will bring together the work of prominent graffiti artists and muralists from different parts of the world under the curatorship of Joan Jiménez “Entes”. Monumental Callao has hosted urban art festivals in recent years and its route is considered by some media to be one of the main ones in Latin America.
“M | Museo + Barrio” Under the curatorship of José Diaz and Sonia Cunliffe, the exhibition brings together pieces by different urban and visual artists who intervene, appropriate or collect elements from the street to reflect on identity. The popular “barrios” and living spaces where anonymous personal or collective stories converge are the only museum-based facilities where the artists are their own inhabitants. They are born from the spontaneity that everyday life confers on it and that, through it, give meaning and identity to our city. Although many people only give it the utilitarian sense as a transit space, these places reach their real dimension when they read and perceive with attention the various elements that compose it: music, language, art, sport, among other socio-cultural manifestations. And because not also its violence and resilience, but integration.
