stage a series of exchange shows in New York and Mexico City, each comprised of artists from both countries, installed side by side.

Showing the works from both countries side by side is not simply an effort to contrast what is happening in either country; but equally of interest, to depict overlapping sensibilities between Mexican and Americans.
