It’s Museo Jumex, Mexico City. There’s this black car. But BAM, it’s nose-down in a pool.
And Museo Jumex is the big white building behind it, Eugenio López’s salute to Latin American art.
And next door? Museo Soumaya. It’s an even bigger building that’s kind of silvery with a shiny skin. Oceanic.
Poof! One day, they say, it appeared in Nuevo Polanco. “That’s the museum of the richest man in the world,” says the professor.
“And look here,” says the toff, turning back to Museo Jumex,“why is that blond wearing an octopus? Why?”
It turns out that the model just adores her octopus, just as Harry Styles is said to adore his fish.
Museo Jumex: explore a massive collection of contemporary art from emerging Latin American artists. Collector Eugenio López started developing young artists in Mexico like Minerva Cuevas, Ortega, Cortazar and Orozco, the Mexican conceptual artist collected globally, (often for his saturated-color Cibachrome prints).

About the Museo Jumex|Museo Soumaya pairing, Eugenio Lopez told a reporter, “Fernando Romero [Carlos Slim’s son-in-law] is a friend. They offered to sell us the land, and we thought it would be a great idea to have the two spaces together to build a unique art corridor in Mexico City, something the city really needed.” The David Chipperfield designed Museo Jumex is just a couple blocks from calm, luxurious shopping at El Palacio de Hierro Polanco and a short walk to Tesla Polanco car showroom, who graciously provided car and driver for our two day shoot.
