San Cristóbal de Las Casas. Chiapas, México
A gallery dedicated to Mayan and Zoque art
What does “-muy” mean? In Tsotsil “-muy” is the verb-root for taking pleasure, or having fun.
Galería MUY is located in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.
We feature objects and works by Mayan and Zoque artists of Chiapas. MUY is a space for all manner of graphic, multimedia and performance production by established and emerging “Fourth World” creators.
Guest artists from other parts of the world are periodically invited to collaborate in exhibits, workshops, as well as participate in the MUY residency program.
MUY has a program of itinerant exhibits showing contemporary work of Indigenous artists in Tsotsil, Tseltal, Zoque and other townships in Indigenous Chiapas. The Gallery has a growing collection of the finest pieces of Mayan and Zoque contemporary art. Finally, MUY publishes materials, including artists’ books, poetry, fanzines, as well as printing engravings and silk screens.
