San Cristóbal de Las Casas. Chiapas, México
A cultural space dedicated to contemporary Mayan and Zoque art
The MUY Gallery is located in the historic center of San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. We are dedicated to exposing the art of creators from the original peoples of Chiapas. La MUY is a space for multimedia, plastic and performance art, created by recognized and emerging artists, who explore the Mayan and Zoque visual languages.
We invite artists from other parts of the world to collaborate in the exhibitions, workshops, as well as participate in the residency program. The MUY offers a traveling program of contemporary indigenous art exhibitions in Tsotsil, Tseltal, Zoque and other towns in Chiapas. The gallery has its own collection of Mayan and Zoque art. Finally, MUY publishes materials such as artist books, poetry, fanzines, and prints and screen printing are produced.
And, “MUY” what? – Muy in tsotsil is the root of the word that means pleasure.
