Founded in July 2012, by artists Jessica Kairé and Stefan Benchoam, NuMu is the first museum dedicated to contemporary art in Guatemala City and was generated as a response to the lack of museums promoting, exhibiting, and registering local and international contemporary art in Guatemala.
Reflecting the evolving landscape of the art scene, this platform will be updated as new information becomes available. Thanks to the artists and curators who have helped to shape and enrich the project to date.
