Hotel Alteza Polanco

Jumex Museum

The Jumex Museum, also known as the Jumex Contemporary Art Foundation, has become one of the main cultural platforms in Mexico City. Located right next to the Soumaya Museum, this cultural venue opened its doors in November 2013.

But its history dates back to 1994, the year in which Eugenio López Alonso bought his first work of art. At that time, the Mexican businessman, owner of one of the most important food companies in Mexico, did not imagine that he would become the most important collector of contemporary art in Latin America.

During the following years of the 1990s, López Alonso dedicated himself to researching and learning as much as he could about art around the world. He did this with the support of a group of professionals who guided him in his desire not only to collect but to make contemporary art known in Mexico.

Thus, little by little, the businessman acquired pieces by artists as important as Andreas Gursky, until he had a fairly extensive collection.

Due to its quality and wonderful exhibition space, the Jumex Museum has established itself as a benchmark for contemporary art in Latin America.
