If it's weird you want, at the Museum of Modern Art it's weird you can find. Monstruosismos delves into the past to discover a turning point in the history of visual art and literature: When did monsters begin to appear? To answer this complex question, work from artists such as Lourdes Grobet, Xavier Esqueda, Graciela lturbide, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Henri Cartier-Bresson will be curated between Museo de Arte Moderno and Museo Mural Diego Rivera, bringing up four themes present from ancient Greece to modern times, such as nature and metamorphosis. More than 20 new works not already housed in the archives will be featured. Walk slowly — you never know what lurks around the corner.


Monstruosismos is an exhibit on monsters in visual art.
Goliath was misunderstood.
