If we have always seen through the frames, why are we so afraid of the art seen through social media? As part of a public, but also as a researcher, I’m the kind of person who has mixed feelings on regard the “instagrammable art”: sharing and give some kind of light to exhibitions or artistic projects on Instagram is something I really enjoy.
John Baldessari, the eternal return
Last Thursday, January 2, one of the most important names of conceptual art died at age 88. Creator of a complex work where written and visual language merges, Baldessari boldly mixed motives of everyday life in diverse formats where humor was the main character.

1/ The Project Casa Nakasone
Casa Nakasone is a collaboration project I did with Escobedo-Soliz architectural firm, in which I activated their new piece, a residential house “Casa Nakasone”, located in Mexico City, with art. For the project, pieces by Gabriela Salazar, Gustavo Artigas and Manuela Garcia were selected. The curatorial line was based on conceptual and material pieces., although a slight “brush” of minimalism was visible, both in the house and in the artworks.
The rise of technology
With the raise of new mediums to produce artworks like digital arts, computer graphics, robotics, among others, comes a change as well in the ways of display and a challenge for the eyes of the observers to find new ways of interaction. Ways of seeing, like John Berger would say.
