The exhibition tells the story of the presence of the MacVeagh House on 16th Street NW, before and after its purchase by the Mexican government in 1921, ending with its 1990 reinvention as the Mexican Cultural Institute. The exhibition’s idea of a constellation is a curatorial proposal that encourages the viewer to establish multiple visual connections across time and space. Fittingly, Urban Constellation is not a simple succession of images of any house on 16th Street, nor is it the story of a space completely removed from its many connections to the city. Instead, it is the story of a house that connects the past with the present—and opens the possibility to reimagine the future of Mexico’s house of cultural diplomacy in the United States.  To Oct. 9 at the Mexican Cultural Institute. Free.
