Contemporary art show reflects ‘Tropicality’

Work from Igor Solis and Ugggo are on view at the Fundación de Artistas.

“Tropicality, Power and Transformation,” a retrospective of artists Hugo Gonzalez (Ugggo) and Igor Solis, is on display until Oct. 10 at the Fundación de Artistas, Calle 55 between 62 and 64.

The works are said to be inspired by Tropical Yucatán and how the peninsula has adapted and evolved over recent years.

Admission is free. Their doors are open Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The non-profit Fundación de Artistas is a relative newcomer to the art scene, situated in what was until now an abandoned casona a block west of Parque Santa Lucia.  Two Yucatean companies, Coqui Coqui and Hacienda Montaecristo, collaborated to create this artistic haven for artistic souls.
