Where does the museum end and the city begins? Soriano, radical and observant, often visited the cafes and walked around the city seeking faces and “witnesses to his delirium”. MMAC Juan Soriano returns artistic pragmatism to a public space in Cuernavaca. A narration built by a collection moments, spatial sequences, routes, plazas, gardens and large trees. An urban sanctuary with openings and closings throughout containers, revealed as unpainted canvases that bring art closer to the city and viceversa. It is Juan Soriano's body of work as a regional and urban cultural repertoire.
