It might sound a bit macabre, perhaps even mocking, that a funeral home decides to partner with an artist collective to celebrate the Day of the Dead, but that’s exactly what J. García López and Locos por el Arte (Crazy about Art) are doing with “Mexicráneos 2018” (“Mexiskulls”) – and no, there’s nothing macabre or sarcastic about it.

Mexicráneos showcases 54 crystal resin skulls decorated by several artists, placed along Reforma Avenue, from the Angel of Independence to the Roundabout of the Palm.

The "Mexicráneos" exhibition is set to visit Italy and France.

The pieces will be auctioned and the funds will be given to chary.

A VR exhibition, complementary to the skulls, has also been installed at the roundabout of the Angel of Independence to offer audiences two possible experiences: discover what is inside a "Mexicráneo", or paint a 3D version of a skull in ten minutes.

The exhibition will be available until November 11, and if you want to take part in the VR experience, you need to register for free at the exhibition’s official website here.
