It’s a rare opportunity to have a peek at a world-renowned art collection. Lucky for us ASU Art Museum curators Julio César Morales and Heather Sealy Lineberry are bringing a very special collection to our own backyard.

You might know recognize the Jumex name -- it’s a juice and nectar brand that’s huge in Mexico and expanding to the U.S. In addition to producing some tasty beverages, the Jumex group also collects works by emerging and established contemporary artists from Mexico, Latin America, the United States, and Europe. Morales and Lineberry selected dozens of pieces from the collection, which includes 2,600 pieces, on view at the museum through Saturday, September 7.

"Turn off the Sun" includes work by artists Doug Aitken, Alejandro Almanza Pereda (site-specific commission), Miguel Calderón, Raúl Cárdenas/Torolab, Lawrence Carroll, Mónica Espinosa, Dan Graham, Cao Guimarães, Eduardo Sarabia, Santiago Sierra, and Robert Smithson.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tuesdays, 11 a.m.; Fri., March 22, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Starts: March 9. Continues through Sept. 7, 2013
