Opening of the National Graphic Workshop (Mexico)


The Ministry of Culture, through the Support Program for the Cultural Infrastructure of the States (PAICE), allocated 1 million dollars for the consolidation of the Macro Space for Culture and the Arts, whose building 49 houses the Taller Nacional de Gráfica, opened on October 29 along with the Fourth Engraving Fair, in what were the bronze casting facilities of the old Railway Workshops and Warehouses of Aguascalientes, Mexico.

The emblematic facilities of the Taller Nacional de Gráfica, whose opening was chaired by Governor Carlos Lozano de la Torre and the head of the Cultural Institute of Aguascalientes, Dulce María Rivas, are the result of collaboration between the federal and state governments for rescuing one of the most representative spaces, both of the state and of the country in terms of historical and industrial heritage.

Alicia Candiani, director and founder of Proyecto´ace, was the only international guest, who, in her speech, thanked the opportunity to be in such a historic moment, as the foundation of such a momentous venue. In addition to highlighting the architecture and infrastructure of this space that is at the same level of some of the most important workshops in the world, wishing the best of successes, where she promised to be a bridge to promote and make the project internationally known and the talent and work of the local and international artists.

The Ministry of Culture carries out various joint actions in Aguascalientes that translate into activities of national importance, such as the Fine Arts Prize for Poetry of Aguascalientes, and the International Biennial of Engraving and Printing José Guadalupe Posada, the remodeling of the State Historical Archive, as well as the consolidation of projects such as the Space Museum, the University of the Arts and the National Graphics Workshop that is now opening its doors.
