Fodor's Expert Review Museo José Luis Cuevas

Centro Histórico Museum/Gallery

Installed in a refurbished former Santa Inés convent, this inviting museum displays international modern art as well as work by Mexico's enfant terrible, José Luis Cuevas, one of the country's best-known contemporary artists. The highlight is the sensational La Giganta (The Giantess), Cuevas's 8-ton bronze sculpture in the central patio. It represents male-female duality and pays homage to Charles Baudelaire's poem of the same name. Up-and-coming Latin American artists appear in temporary exhibitions throughout the year.
