WHAT ARE YOU SHOWING?
The pairing of Yázpik’s sculptural works with Known Work’s functional design pieces encapsulate the porous boundaries between art and design, form and function. The exhibition is meant to engage viewers in a sensorial conversation, one that inspires new understandings of the importance of spatial context in the presentation and appreciation of art and design.
On view at MATERIA Studio Feb 7-11 from 11-6p and by appointment Feb 12-26
Location Serapio Rendon 8 Interior 106 Col. San Rafael CDMX
WHAT IS NOT TO BE MISSED?
One of the exhibits I'm most looking forward to will be an offsite exhibition presented by Peana Gallery in the home of the late composer Conlon Nancarrow designed by Juan O'Gorman in 1950. The exhibit will bring together contemporary work by 24 artists. They are fantastic at bringing together art, architecture, culture and history and never disappoint!
