As part of preventive and health care measures in closed spaces, the Soumya Museum of the Carlos Slim Foundation continues to produce virtual content so that the Mexican population can continue to enjoy the museum experience from home.
Today we present a capsule where Laura González, from the curatorship department of the site, talks about a work that is part of the Soumya Museum’s religious art collection, specifically one created by unknown artists from Brabant Murti, a Flemish duchy on what would now be the border between Belgium and the Netherlands.
Without further ado, we leave the material here:
Forming part of the Carlos Slim Foundation, the Soumya Museum opened its doors to the public in 1994. It is a non-profit cultural institution whose business is to collect, examine, preserve, disseminate and exhibit artistic evidence mainly from Mexico and Europe.
Likewise, it is an environmentally responsible place to build open knowledge through tools such as Augmented Reality, Infinitum, Wikipedia, and Google Arts & Culture.
The Soumya Museum aims to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of aesthetic works through permanent, temporary and traveling exhibitions, catalogs and monthly publications, recreational venues, conferences, film series, interactive programs and more.
