Mexico’s National Center for the Arts (Cenart) opened a monthlong symposium of Japanese-Mexican art on Saturday, Aug. 20.

The multidisciplinary symposium, which is set to run through Sunday, Oct. 2, includes presentations of Japanese theater, music, cinema, visual arts and a video art installation, as well as the first International Colloquium of Art and Culture Studies Ibero America and Japan.

The fruit of a cultural collaboration between Cenart, the Mexico City Culture Secretariat, the Japan Foundation in Mexico and the Mexico-Japan Permanent Art and Culture Research Seminar, the symposium showcases binational creative and sensitive works that intertwine visions and traditions of ancient cultures in the light of a contemporary world.
