IGNCA to celebrate Mexico's Independence
As part of the 208th – anniversary celebrations of Mexico's Independence, the Embassy of Mexico is organising a photo exhibition in collaboration with Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, New Delhi.
The exhibition titled, 'Mexico in the World Heritage' – A collection of pictures captured by Mexican photographer Adalberto Ríos Szalay – portraying the sites and practices of Mexico listed as World Heritage by UNESCO will be inaugurated by H E Melba Pría, Ambassador of Mexico to India and Dr Sachchidanand Joshi, Member Secretary, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts on August 27 at IGNCA at 6 pm.
The show will remain open for public view until September 14 from 10:30 am – 7:30 pm every day.
This exhibition aims to initiate creative dialogues between Mexico and India, and explore the opportunities of knowledge exchange on restoration, conservation, and promotion of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Mexico is, as India, one of the finest examples of the complexity of these processes and of the gradual formation and transformation of the idea of cultural heritage.
