Mario Garcia Torres: Let’s Walk Together
MEXICO CITY  •  Museo Tamayo  •  27 February - 19 June 2016
 
Mario Garcia Torres’s work deals largely with locating and challenging the places of art. This interest has taken him on a peripatetic journey. His wanderings have thus evolved from quests in search of a destination to surveys of art as incident or event. The exhibition Let’s Walk Together, curated by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, captures this ongoing pursuit, presenting more than thirty artworks and projects created by Garcia Torres over the past fifteen years. Much like the artist’s own practice, the experience of the exhibition involves movement. It takes place at different venues throughout Mexico City that lie within a perimeter of 300 acres. This corresponds to the total area of Museo de Arte Sacramento — founded by the artist in Northern Mexico — where the first iteration of Let’s Walk Together took place, and where this exhibition,in some ways, remains anchored.

Carlito Dalceggio: I Do Not Scream For An Audience, I Shout At The Holy
MEXICO CITY  •  Celaya Brothers Gallery  •  25 February - 2 April 2016
 
 

For the exhibition I Do Not Scream For An Audience, I Shout At The Holy, Canadian artist, Carlito Dalceggio (born 1971, Quebec) , presents a series of multidisciplinary, spiritual and symbolic artworks. Butterfly wings, kites, peacock feathers, masks, organic motifs that remind us of Mexican popular art with a peculiar reminiscence of Picasso’s cubism, Rauschenberg’s abstract expressionism and Matisse’s primitivism.

In between art school and travels, Dalceggio installed his studio in different cities: Montreal, Mexico City, Bali, New York and Paris, creating a bohemian spirit with local artists, accumulating collaborations in art, fashion, circus arts, photography, literature and film.

Eduardo Navarro: Octopia
MEXICO CITY  •  Museo Tamayo  •  12 March - 3 July 2016
 
 

Eduardo Navarro (Buenos Aires, 1979) approaches each project as a case study in which his recurrent determination to transform into another being results in altered behavior and rules of conduct. Navarro´s artistic method rejects the imminent distance between himself and his object of study. Therefore, when researching alternate ways of thinking and expressions that are unfamiliar to him, Navarro immerses himself in different social systems related to the animal, legal, spiritual, scientific, archaeological, and sports spheres. 

In Octopia — a project developed for Museo Tamayo—Navarro creates a system of thought for a large-scale octopus. The work occupies the galleries of the museum as an installation; it becomes an active being in a series of performances in the Chapultepec Park. Navarro´s interest in octopods originates from the fact that these are allegedly the most intelligent invertebrate animals. The intention of gathering 80 participants for Octopia is to collectively transform into this extraordinary animal, by means of an exploration that involves movement and corporal sensitivity.
