The Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey presents Lightopia, a selection of more than 300 works that demonstrate the performative power of light from the beginnings of industrial society to the visions that will define our future. With its interdisciplinary approach, the exhibition shows how lighting design has influenced modern living spaces, explores the current paradigm shift and locates it within cultural history. It is the first exhibition that not only examines partial aspects of lighting design, but also looks at the different facets of lighting design and places it in the context of current debates.
