The newest show at the Jumex Foundation's space just outside of Mexico City is going to be curated by Whitney curator Shamim Momin.  The show is entitled La nada y el ser (Nothingness and Being).  We've covered two previous interpretations of Jumex's gigantic contemporary art collection: An Unruly History of the Readymade and Schweiz über alles at La Fundación/Colección Jumex
