Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (NuMu) is the first and only contemporary art museum in Guatemala, dedicated exclusively to supporting, exhibiting, and documenting contemporary art. Founded in 2012, NuMu is an artist-run space, co-founded and directed by artists Stefan Benchoam and Jessica Kairé.
Central to NuMu’s mission is to offer the necessary support to realize artistic projects of great value, despite the shortage of local institutions, and both private and governmental funding. NuMu re-evaluates what it means to be a contemporary art museum in the 21st century, in both the local context of Guatemala City and the international art scene.
For this talk at the ICI Curatorial Hub, Jessica Kairé will discuss the development of NuMu and how she envisions its exhibitions and programs.
