With the global pandemic changing most of our interactions, creative solutions abound as we try to determine how best to keep safe, and socially responsible, in our current moment.

In this feature by Andrea Navarro for Bloomberg, one mall in Mexico City has repurposed its underground parking garage to become a drive-through art show. The show -- playfully titled “Objects in the Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear” -- runs from November 14 through December 20 and showcases the work of both established Mexican artists and some emerging creatives.

“It’s a platform for artists to get their names out there and for people to experience art in person.” - Mariangeles Reygadas.
