Working in conjunction with Fundación Jumex, the ASU Art Museum is proud to present Turn off the Sun, a rare opportunity for the public to experience selected works of art from one of the largest and most important contemporary art collections in Latin America.
Fundación/Colección Jumex is a spectacular collection of more than 2,600 works by emerging and established contemporary artists from Mexico, Latin America, the United States and Europe. Based in Mexico City, Fundación Jumex has a 10-year history of supporting contemporary art through collecting, exhibitions and educational programs.
The exhibition Turn off the Sun presents major pieces and installations by artists rarely or never seen in Arizona exploring diverse media and practice. The work has been selected around the complex relationship between Arizona and Mexico with broad references to borders, labor, movement and site.
The exhibition is co-curated by ASU Art Museum Senior Curator and Associate Director Heather Sealy Lineberry, ASU Art Museum Curator Julio Cesar Morales and Curator Michel Blancscube of Colección Jumex.
Turn off the Sun was organized in partnership with Fundación Jumex, with generous support from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation and additional support from the Helme Prinzen Endowment, Target and Friends of the ASU Art Museum.
