Artefacto's mission is twofold. We make crafts accessible by trading, but we are also deeply interested in sharing the stories and knowledge behind crafts. That is why we have created this page, dedicated to exhibitions. Freely enjoy a curated selection of crafts from our living and purpose-full collection through curated exhibitions. Discover in more depth and detail, the history and diverse processes of Mexico’s craft objects.
Mexican indigenous crafts encompass a complex, diverse and wide array of objects that stretch back to the ancient civilisations of Mesoamerica. In this exhibition, we will follow the day of an archetypical Mexican to explore some of Mexico’s most distinguished crafts, but also lesser-known traditions that are at risk. We will uncover the hidden knowledge, stories and beauty behind authentic Mexican crafts and cultures.
