who we are


Both the cultural branch of the Consulate General of Mexico in New York and a US not-for-profit organization, The Mexican Cultural Institute is committed to generating awareness of the richness, dynamism and cultural diversity of Mexico as a plural and creative nation.

what we do

The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York supports and develops programs that foster a better understanding of our country through the promotion of its arts and culture. Our goals include making sure that our activities have a high and lasting impact among all the multiethnic and multicultural communities in the New York City area. 

The Institute aims to generate interest among the Mexican communities in the Tri-State area by presenting Mexico’s most relevant artistic expressions ranging from the Pre-Columbian period to  contemporary art.

Every year, The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York works hard to organize music concerts, performances by dance ensembles, art exhibitions presenting Mexican artists living in both Mexico and New York, film screenings, book presentations, and participate in festivals such as Celebrate Mexico Now, Latin Beat, The New York Film Festival, and Lincoln Center’s Out Of Doors festival.

We also partner with prestigious institutions, conferences, and festivals such as The Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim Museum, El Museo del Barrio, The New Museum, Americas Society, Instituto Cervantes, The King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, The Museum of Arts and Design, The New York Botanical Garden, The Jewish Museum, The New York Art Book Fair, PINTA: The Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art Fair, The Annual Conference of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP), LARK Playwright Development Center, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, among many others.
