Through the visions of more than seventy artists, the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO) presents a reflection on one of the most widespread social and cultural phenomena in the world by way of the exhibition Soccer. Art and Passion; a show that motivates readings well beyond the game’s playful side, delving into this sport from ontological, anthropological, physical, and marketing points of view.

The exhibition brings together a selection of works by artists who have explored this theme. Their works allow us to measure the profound influence of the sport on our culture as well as providing new ways of approaching social reality and identity itself.
