Today’s Mexican Art Scene: Virtual Studio Visit with Javier Marin
Start Date: 4/7/2021Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/7/2021

Event Description:

Join us for the third in our series with contemporary Mexican artists who are making their mark on the international scene. Javier Marin (b. 1962) is one of the most influential and controversial artists working in Mexico today, with a wide body of work developed throughout 35 years, consistently recognized by international art institutions. During this rare virtual visit to his studio in Mexico City, he will talk about his working process, his sculptures and monumental works for public spaces, with emphasis on his newest project, the Fábrica de San Pedro Cultural Center in Uruapan, in the State of Michoacan.

This groundbreaking project is a collaboration between architects, restorers, curators, historians, designers, and artists, organized by the Javier Marin Foundation. This nineteenth-century textile factory brings together skilled artisans and contemporary artists to preserve and strengthen their unique cultural identity and community. To talk about the project, the artist has invited two of the main collaborators in this adventure: Estefania Angeles, Director at the Javier Marin Foundation and Eduardo Mier y Terán, Director at Terreno Baldío Art Gallery.
