HEMBRAMALA’s latest exhibition, “New Mexico | New Art”, will take place in Tokyo Design Week, from November 2nd to 7th.
HEMBRAMALA is a Tokyo-based cultural project dedicated to promote Mexican contemporary art in Japan. Their two main objectives are to provide a platform in Asia for independent Mexican artists to project themselves internationally, and to widen the image of Mexico within Japan. Participating in Tokyo Design Week has given them the opportunity to expose their project to a broad audience interested in international creative industries and is a great opportunity to see some of the best artwork from Mexico. They will be at the central venue in the Creative Life section, exhibiting the work of over 15 Mexican artists.
Tokyo Design Week tickets cost 2000yen in advance and can be bought here, otherwise they are 2500 on the door.
