Mingei – The Beauty of Use
Tijuana’s Cultural Center (CECUT) and Mingei International are partnering on a major exhibition at CECUT, featuring more than 500 of the finest objects in the Museum’s renowned collection of international folk art. This will be the first time in its 33-year history that Mingei International Museum will present an international exhibition.
The exhibition will offer the opportunity to see objects that are among the highest expressions of human creativity, arising from daily life in cultures around the world. Each viewer will be encouraged to discover beauty in the unexpected—to connect with the makers of the objects and with their skill, imagination, freshness of expression and humanity. Folk art from all over the world will be featured, including from Mingei International’s Mexican collection, the Museum’s largest.
Mingei International Museum collects, preserves and exhibits art of the people from all cultures of the world, including objects by anonymous ancient craftsmen, traditional cultures of the past and present and craft artists of today. Mingei – The Beauty of Use will capture and present the essence of the Museum’s collection, which now includes over 21,000 objects from 141 countries.
