We invite you to enjoy an exclusive members’ hour with our Gallery Educators and follow a theme-led tour of special exhibitions and selections from MCASD’s permanent collection. Each month offers a new opportunity to gain a deeper perspective of the artists’ work on view.

Exhibitions on view

Explore our inaugural Collection installation that includes conceptual art from the 1960s to the present, showcasing works by internationally recognized artists to emerging talent, in addition to our two special exhibitions:

  • Art in America's must-see museum show Celia Álvarez Muñoz: Breaking the Binding - Spanning forty years, this exhibition is the first career retrospective of Conceptual artist Celia Álvarez Muñoz (b. 1937, El Paso, TX). Featuring over thirty-five artworks – including large-scale immersive installations, photographic series, and book projects – this major exhibition highlights the artist’s playful, witty style, often characterized by her use of bilingual puns and mistranslations in both text and image. Muñoz often draws inspiration from her lived experience as a resident of the United States-Mexico borderlands.
  • The artist's first solo museum show Griselda Rosas: Yo te cuido - Presents new textile drawings and sculptural installations that explore themes of inheritance and intergenerational knowledge. Rosas, who is based between San Diego and Tijuana, adopts embroidery skills learned from her mother, grandmother, and aunts, often using her young son’s drawings as foundations on which to layer, stitch, and build. Incorporating natural pigments and collage, Rosas combines these inventive images with colonial imagery to evoke a collision and circulation of cultures.
