The pandemic has been a source of an overwhelming sense of uncertainty for everyone around the world but mostly for those who are living abroad. The Embassy of Mexico in the United Kingdom presented the second opening of the art exhibition ‘Hues of Crisis’, featuring the works of the artistic community of Mexicans that captured their experiences during confinement in the UK.
The works were exhibited in the new Cultural Pop-Up “Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz” of the Embassy of Mexico. This new space in the heart of London will serve as a meeting point and creative space for Mexican communities in the United Kingdom as a cultural bridge between Mexico and the United Kingdom.

Hues of Crisis is a selection of art that explores different moments through which some Mexicans understood the pandemic living abroad. More than 30 people participated with pieces that communicate the physical selves, mental wellbeing, family, motherhood, and experiences during confinement.
Through painting, drawing, textile art, graffiti, collage, and photography, the artists featured in this exhibition show the isolation, grief, and peculiar challenges of living abroad during this strange, unprecedented time that we are experiencing together.
Hues of Crisis is an art experience that shows the escape from an uncertain period of time from the Mexican community living in the UK, outstanding resilience, and talent despite pandemic isolation abroad.
