Shaped in Mexico is a contemporary art exhibition supported by the Margain-Junco Collection that brings together works by international artists from, or inspired by, Mexico. 

The exhibition has a multidisciplinary format that combines different understandings and particular outsider views of contemporary visual arts from Mexico. Shaped in Mexico encourages public and artist interaction, generating discussion and dialogue through programmed guided tours and open talks. All exhibited artists are Mexican either by heritage or by creative choice, meaning that Mexico’s rich cultural tradition and identity has inspired or provoked their artistic sensibilities.  The exhibition contributes to the visibility of Mexico on the international stage, by providing a global platform for emerging and mid-career contemporary artists. 

Shaped in Mexico is focused on a collaborative approach to production, and has been generated through discursive means between collectors, artists, curators and collaborators. The project was developed in Mexico, for the world, by the founders of DISTRITO 14 Art Project in Monterrey Lorena Junco & Silvia P. Morton.

Artists are either directly invited to exhibit in project rooms or apply through an open-call. They are selected through an inclusive curatorial model, composed of experts from various backgrounds, in a process that aims to transcend all Mexican geo-political boundaries and bring the dynamism of the Mexican contemporary art scene to Europe.

Artworks exhibited are available for sale, with proceeds directly supporting the artists and Shaped in Mexico programming,  structure that combines philanthropic and commercial practices as the organisation evolves.
