CERAMIC WRITING WORKSHOP

WITH SANDRA SÁNCHEZ

DESCRIPTION

Arte Abierto begins the Public Program activities linked to the exhibition Things We Do for Love with a ceramic writing workshop taught by Sandra Sánchez.

  • Saturday October 15, 2022.

  • Aimed at all public: children, youth and adults.
  • Limited admission | Prior registration at actividades@arteabierto.org
  • This workshop is free.

MEMORY BEAT

This workshop is an invitation to explore personal memory through narrative, visual and tactile writing. We will investigate our own history and translate specific experiences into forms, sensations, intensities and flows.

Ceramics will allow us to capture not only stories and figures, but also forces, footprints and body movements. In addition to making an inquiry about intimacy and writing. The result will be a piece of pottery that each participant can take home, like a talisman.

No prior knowledge is required.

IMPORTANT: As we will be working on low-temperature ceramics, after the workshop, we will keep your piece for burning. A week later we will have the piece already fired and enameled available for you to pick up at Arte Abierto.

 

Sandra Sánchez Writes in different media, including ceramics. Her current research focuses on modes of collaborative writing and proposals for production and reception beyond the aesthetic relationship “artist-work-spectator”. In 2015 she founded Zona de Desgaste, a space dedicated to mediation, writing and critical reflection on contemporary art and art philosophy. She currently edits OndaMx magazine, leads Aeromoto Library and teaches at Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana.

ART & ARCHITECTURE DERIVES

The ideal of the multifamily apartment complex.

A conversation with Juan José Kochen.

We all know some Housing Unit in Mexico City, we have visited them or even lived in them. They are considered a symbol of modernity in our country, but what stories do they hide? And how have they defined the ways of life and the image of the capital?

Join us in our 8th Art and Achitecture Derive, Juan José Kochen will talk about the idea of ​​the multifamily apartment complex in Mexico City.

The term multi-family emerged to identify a grouped housing typology –at different levels– to accommodate homes based on a social unit for the transformation of collective relations in the urban landscape.

Between notions of progress, modernization, “stabilizing development” and the “Mexican miracle”, the Welfare State built houses with squares, parks, gardens, murals, public art and infrastructure to add cities within the city.

How was the multi-family experience? What did we learn and what did we forget? Multifamily homes are the modern utopia of a Mexico without neighborhoods.

Arte Abierto continues with its new public program “Derivas de arte y arquitectura”, which seeks to renew our gaze on the architectural legacy of Mexico City. From a series of talks focused on rescuing the parallel stories of emblematic architectural projects and public spaces that have witnessed the variable intersection between art and architecture. In this first stage, the program deals mainly with modern architecture, based on a series of talks given by invited curators, architects, artists and urban planners.

With this program, ways of returning to architecture part of its public, experiential, collective character and close to those of us who inhabit the city are tested, recognizing in it its condition as a living archive. From these talks, circumstances, contexts and anecdotes are revealed that have been part of his sensitive memory and that complement his material memory, a relationship that often escapes documentary narratives and academic accounts.

The objective of the drifts is to generate experiences of spatial rediscovery, which allow us to renew our gaze on the legacy of certain emblematic architectural and artistic works, as well as those that have been forgotten.

The derives will be carried out free of charge on the last Saturday of each month, at 1:00 p.m. with a limited capacity.

BETWEEN INTUITIONS AND ACTIONS

HOW WAS THE EXHIBITION THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE CREATED?

A CONVERSATION WITH ERICK MEYENBERG AND ROBERTO VELÁZQUEZ

DESCRIPTION

BETWEEN INTUITIONS AND ACTIONS: HOW WAS THE EXHIBITION THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE CREATED?

A conversation with Erick Meyenberg and Roberto Velázquez about the production processes and the implications of making an audiovisual and ceramic exhibition such as Things We Do for Love possible.

During the production process of  Things We Do for Love, there were a series of encounters and disagreements with different materials and supports that, despite the technical distances, made the project an assembled whole. Thus, this exhibition is an example of how the complexities of artistic practice and its transformations as a result of the multiple perspectives and actions that intervene in its production can be addressed.

This conversation with Erick Meyenberg and Roberto Velázquez, Director of Planning and Operations at Arte Abierto, will be a journey through the various collaborations that shaped the project, recounting the intuitions, actions, voices and finally, the matters that were involved. in its elaboration, such as ceramics, video, sound or museography itself.

Some of the questions that will guide the discussion are: How were the video and ceramic pieces in the exhibition created? What does it mean to mount an exhibition of these dimensions? What kind of knowledge, knowledge and trades are involved in the artistic creation and exhibitions?

For Arte Abierto it is essential to expose the collaborative nature of art through exhibitions that, like this one, arise from a process and an exchange of ideas, thoughts and feelings.

DERIVES OF ART & ACHITECTURE

Tracing the modern in the architecture of the Historic Downtown of Mexico City.

A conversation with Christian del Castillo.

In our 7th Derive of Art and Achitecture we are joined by Christian del Castillo, who will talk to us about the modern architecture of the Historic Downtown of Mexico City.

The architectural imagery of the Historic Downtown of Mexico City is mainly nourished by the typologies of colonial architecture and the beginning of the 20th century, including pre-Hispanic architecture. It is a space where buildings from different eras and contexts overlap that have defied the passage of time, real estate speculation and the expiration of their materials.

Seeking to expand this imaginary, this conversation invites us to rediscover the projects and buildings —still standing— designed by those architects whose work was oriented towards the banner of modernity and who also emerged from the dialogues between plastic integration and the artistic avant-garde in Mexico.

DERIVES OF ART & ACHITECTURE

Architecture for playing in 20th Century Mexico City.

A conversation with Aldo Solano Rojas.

For the sixth session of Derives of Art and Achitecture in Arte Abierto our guest is Aldo Solano Rojas, who will talk about one of the fields where architecture was most experienced in 20th-century Mexico City: play areas or playgrounds, a typology that attracted architects and artists for its playful, uncertain and innovative quality.

During the first two thirds of the 20th century, the Modern Movement applied its principles in architecture and urban planning. In Mexico this resulted in a city full of buildings, squares and parks that obeyed different ideas and architectural principles.

Through the playgrounds, the principles of plastic integration were applied, also influenced by participatory sculpture and pedagogical currents. This talk reviews the history and evolution of playgrounds in Mexico, their importance as creators of public space and as an important fundamental typology for the history of Mexican architecture.
