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. Roughly, the house and the pieces shared  a tendency of doing the maximum out of the minimum, the use of very rough materials, and combining natural elements, like the air and the light to complete the pieces.  We decided to present the exhibition to the public only through the records we did: videos and photography. The idea behind was to create a concept exhibition, that could match the works we were exhibiting.

Tittle: On Being an Artist

Author: Michael Craig-Martin

Editorial: Art / Books

Place: Los Angeles, 2019

304 pp.

This is an erudite, insightful and amenable readable collection. Few living artists can claim to have had the influence of Michael Craig-Martin in the artworld. He was born in 1941 and he has been celebrated internationally for his art; he has also helped many generations of younger artists. His teachings have combined personal example and individual guidance, offering students insights gained from his own professional highs and lows. On Being an Artist, which partakes from memory and practical instruction, mixes reminiscence, personal philosophy, self-examination and advice for young artists. In a series of interesting episodes, Craig-Martin expresses himself with wit and candor on many ideas and concepts, events and people that have inspired and shaped him throughout his life, from his childhood in postwar America through his time as an art student in the 1960s and subsequent work as an art teacher, to his international success in later years.

Can an Artwork´s record be a work of art?

There is a common belief that only things that can be seen, actually happened, as if there is no place for private memory. “To” witness and “a” witness are the key of history. Herodoto and Thucydides began the tradition many years ago. The importance of the trace, and the document have only grown in time: voices, notes, systematizing, catalogues, archives, photos, all resources that evidence that yes, something took place.
