DIEGO PÉREZ

Diego Pérez García (CDMX, 1975) is a multidisciplinary visual artist who began his career in photography, although stone sculptures have been the center of his practice in recent years and now, sand, which makes us reflect that we are a small moment on the timeline. This practice results from a combination of gardening, models and stone carving of different colors, textures and materials.

For Diego to imagine and daydream is vital, since he considers both a trigger for the creative act. He constantly searches for that limit that divides art from other types of objects, convinced that all material is an endless source of forms whose relationships do not end in the work, but extend to the environment and the viewer.

His individual exhibitions include Pasatiempo, in collaboration with Iván Krassoievitch, Galería Machete (2015); Nuestra casa sería un campamento, Museo Experimental El Eco (2013); Lo lejano hace señas a lo lejano, Sala de Proyectos Gamboa del Museo de Arte Moderno, Ciudad de México (2010); Sombra de sol, Künstlerresidenz Blumen, Leipzig, Alemania (2008); Topografía Próxima, Centro Fotográfico Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Oaxaca (2006) y Sólo para el viento existen las hojas de los árboles, Celda Contemporánea (2006). His work has been shown in various group exhibitions at the Juan José Arreola Lake House, Luis Adelantado Gallery, kurimanzutto, Jumex Collection, Carrillo Gil Art Museum and Contemporary Art University Museum. He has participated in artistic residencies in Germany, Canada and the United States. He was a beneficiary of the Bancomer-MACG Arte Actual Program (2008-2009) and the Young Creators program of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (2001-2002 and 2008-2009).

Diego Pérez lives and works in Mexico City.

ERIK TLASECA

Erik Bernardo Tlaseca Gaona (CDMX, 1989) is an interdisciplinary visual artist who studied Plastic and Visual Arts at the ENPEG “La Esmeralda” and the National University of Bogotá, Colombia.

In 2017 he was part of the Photographic Production Seminar of the Image Center. In 2014-2015 and 2018-2019 he was awarded the FONCA Young Creators scholarship and between 2019 and 2020 he was part of the BBVA – MACG program. He completed artistic residency programs at Motel Spatie, the Netherlands, at the WRO Art Center, Poland, and at the KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, Indonesia, as well as participated in various group exhibitions, including the Jakarta Biennale in Indonesia.

He was a founding member of Cooperativa Cráter Invertido, Zúngale and Taller de Producción Editorial.

His work addresses themes that arise from unattainable memories and images that have a connection on territorial transformations and changes in identity. The images and the archive are essential in his work, since they unite memory with his identity.

Research, field work and a symbiosis carried out with palm weavers from the Mixe area in San Pedro Jocotipac are evident in the video ‘Some day the night will come’.

HÉCTOR BARROSO

Héctor Barroso is a contemporary architect who has run Taller Héctor Barroso since 2010.

This firm seeks to generate architectural proposals that manage to merge with their surroundings, taking advantage of the natural resources of each place: the incidence of light and shadows, the surrounding vegetation, the composition of the land and geographical features, as well as the materials and methods site constructs.

We can see how his proposals seek to extend the interior spaces to the exterior, making the division between the two almost imperceptible. Thus, the architecture emerges in harmony with the site, generating spaces with emotional content that evoke memory, highlighting the habitable quality of the architectural exercise.

CARLA ALTESOR

De padre uruguayo y madre de ascendencia Yucateca, Carla Altesor nació en la Ciudad de México. A causa de esta mezcla de costumbres, creció amando desde asados, pastas frescas y Panuchos, hasta “comfort foods” americanos. Guiada por una familia donde todos fueron maestros de clases de cocina, y gracias a la fusión de sabores y culturas, su paladar y conocimiento culinario tuvieron oportunidad de ampliarse desde temprana edad. Carla es Licenciada en Artes Plásticas por la Universidad de las Américas Puebla.

Estando en Cholula, su inquietud la impulsó a abrir un club de comida donde cada semana se preparaban menús de degustación con ingredientes locales. Igualmente, asesoró aperturas de negocios de comida, y empezó a crear y servir pequeños eventos exclusivos.

En 2007 comienza a impartir cursos de cocina particulares y a la par, escribie reseñas de restaurantes para revistas como Saborearte, Sabor y Animal.

Retoma la creación de eventos boutique dentro de la ciudad de México y aún los ejecuta. En 2016 se unió a Sicomoro Ediciones para llevar a cabo el libro Alejandro Ruiz, Cocina de Oaxaca, donde su participación comienza con la investigación culinaria, y pasa por creación, desarrollo prueba, edición de recetas y textos.

Actualmente Carla vive en la Ciudad de México y continúa desarrollando recetas, escribiendo, diseñando y dando asesorías dentro del rubro culinario.

MARCO MARGAIN

This capsule is for all foodies.

Marco Margain is a Mexican chef who practices “liquidation” cooking, referring to the use of ingredients that one has to create a delicious dish.

Marco’s most important projects are: his restaurant, Broka, in the heart of the Roma neighborhood and Hacienda San Andrés, where a large part of the ingredients in his kitchen come from, such as wild mushrooms which come from his organic crops. The union of these projects is focused on the return to the field and sustainable consumption. Both on the farm and in the restaurant work is done according to the natural processes of the earth; taking advantage of and consuming seasonal products.

Marco explains the importance of nourishing the land so that these nutrients are transmitted to the crops. For example, organic waste from the restaurant is returned to the ranch to make compost and livestock food.

This chef practices what some know as ‘agriculture with culture’, an agriculture that helps us regain a farming culture that is closer to nature and processes, respecting the land, the environment and the final product. A sustainable and healthy agri-food system that shows that there are alternatives regarding food production.

A pioneer in the Mexican music scene, his synthesis of African, Latin and Caribbean music with electronic rhythms opened what was an inhospitable route in Mexico. Collaborations with Fake Fazz and Wako Texas allowed him to flex his prowess for live improvisation on the bass, bringing a unique flavor of Jazz and Funk.

The construction of songs and organic sound of instruments translates Sanchez Dub into an exciting live band, a clear example is his latest single “Humans”.

Juan Mora Catlett (CDMX, 1949). This Mexican film director, editor and screenwriter is one of the most prominent personalities in contemporary Mexican cinema. His work of spreading the Pre-Hispanic indigenous culture is extraordinary.

Juan Roberto Mora Catlett is one of the most recognized academics in film teaching in Mexico. Since 1976 he has taught at the Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematográficos, UNAM, where he has trained (and inspired) dozens of generations of filmmakers such as María Novaro, Alejandro Islas, Alfonso Cuarón, Emmanuel Lubezki, Fernando Eimbcke and Ernesto Contreras, to name a few.

It incorporates elements of archeology, pre-Hispanic codices and indigenous popular culture. This film was the recipient of the Best Director and Best Film Award at the Annual Hispanic Film Festival in 2008.
