The Mexican Cultural Institute is proud to announce the opening of its next exhibit, A Dark and Scandalous Rockfall, (Una oscura y escandalosa caída de piedras). A collaborative, site-specific sculptural installation by artists Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta, A Dark and Scandalous Rockfall uses the embedded meaning of natural stone to explore Mexico and the United States’ shared history.

Organized by independent curator Laura Roulet.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the Mexican Cultural Institute is excited to host a special dinner with chef, cookbook author and PBS host Pati Jinich. Celebrating the Jewish heritage of the exhibit’s featured artists Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta, the evening will include dinner featuring a Mexican-Jewish menu and stories from the history of the Jewish Mexican community.

The Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington is located at 2829 16th St NW. To learn more about the exhibit, visit or call (202) 728-1628.
