Where Do We Go From Here? Selections from La Colección Jumex explores one of the most important collections of contemporary art in Latin America. The exhibition is co-organized by the Bass Museum in Miami Beach and the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Fundación/Colección Jumex based in Mexico.
