I was in Austin recently for SXSWedu and took a break to stroll through the Mexic-Arte Museum on Congress. It’s a small place but is full of excellent contemporary art.



This is a uniquely Southern American museum; there is nothing quite like this in Canada (although there is some kick-ass contemporary Aboriginal art). For the first time they are staying open during SXSW proper, so I hope people get a chance to visit. In past years they’ve emptied the space and rented the unit out to corporations as an event space. It’s way better with art in it.
