The Wings of Mexico to open in Kuwait
December 2, 2017, 1:33 pm

The art exhibition ‘Wings of Mexico’ by Mexican sculptor Jorge Marin will be inaugurated at the Museum of Modern Art, in Kuwait City on 5 December at 11am. The ceremony will be inaugurated by Ambassador of Mexico to Kuwait H.E. Miguel Ángel Isidro and Secretary-General of the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) Dr. Ali Al-Youha.

"The way Mexicans have appropriated these wings and the way people around the world have interacted with them, made me want to bring the universality of Mexican art to all frontiers, it is a gateway to Mexico, and from Mexico to the world,” explains Jorge Marin." It is a privilege to bring this artwork to Kuwait, where it will achieve its goal of becoming a meeting point between peoples and cultures.”

The Museum of Modern Art in Kuwait will host the Wings of Mexico until March 2018. This museum is located in the old downtown of Kuwait City, home of the country's representative political and cultural institutions. Wings of Mexico will become a part of the present and past of the city, and will contribute to the aesthetic contemplation of the Arabian Gulf with its millenary history.

These monumental wings of more than four meters high and 1.6 tons, created by the artist at his studio in Mexico City, began their journey in 2010 in the Mexican capital. Seven years later, the piece has touched millions of people in 4 continents as part of the sculptor’s art tour around the world. "The Wings of Mexico represent universal human symbols as peace and freedom, which have fundamental value for Kuwait and Mexico - millenary cultures - that today more than ever crave for peace in their environment," concludes Marin.

The arrival of Wings of Mexico to Kuwait is possible thanks to the Embassy of Mexico in Kuwait, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Kuwait, the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID), the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters of Kuwait, KGL Logistics, AlrFrance-KLM and Kuwait International Bank.
