To commemorate this milestone, the Consulate General of Mexico will present the exhibition "Mexican Trilogy" from February 14th to March 13th at the Duolun Museum of Modern Art.

  This exhibition features the artwork of three Mexican artists in different times and generations. From the contemporary scene we will present Brenda Franco’s series "Walking Blind", ink on rice paper. We will also showcase a collection of the most creative posters by the multifaceted architect, photographer and graphic artist Daniel Nierman. Last but not least, we will present reproduction prints by the Mexican artist, illustrator and engraver Jose Guadalupe Posada, whose iconic images have become associated with the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead.
