The Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Artes Roma, better known as MUCA Roma, reopened its doors in 2015 with a curatorial and public program focusing on the rights to the city. With this new vision, the venue takes an important place in promotes dialogue, participation and debate among the citizenship.

There are four lines that make up MUCA Roma's new calling: a public schedule, a curatorial schedule, an audiovisual room and a library/playroom.

The venue’s reopening featured the show La Ciudad. Sus afectos, a curatorial project by Yameli Meri which details a multifaceted vision of the metropolis, interpreting it as a symbolic conception, product of culture, history and social relationships—among other audience conceptions—. The show is consisted of pieces by Carlos Amorales, Fernando Ortega, Gabriel Kuri, Enrique Metinides and many other artists in the MUAC and the Isabel and Agustín Coppel (CIAC) collections.

A wise move on this renewal was the public program, which is regarded as a formative and collaborative project through calls, strategies and workshops that foster the exchange of ideas from a scientific and artistic standpoint.

The AV room sees a great diversity of pieces generated on this medium. Their program is tied to their curatorial outline and their collection. The library has a set of 500 specialized publications which reafirm the institution’s commitment to investigation in Mexico, whereas the playroom offers a variety of programs for children.

As you can tell, MUCA Roma is more than a museum: it is now a space that recognizes the importance of citizen participation.
