RICHARD MEIER: RETROSPECTIVE

MARCO presents a retrospective exhibition of the most emblematic works of renowned architect Richard Meier through maquettes, sketches, renderings, photographs, and a selection of industrial design objects that he has realized for a wide-range of firms such as Knoll. Meier (b. 1934, United States) opened his own studio in 1963 and from the beginning he has continued along a determined and constant line with his projects. His buildings possess an unmistakable style where the same importance concedes to the clarity of lines, harmony, spaces, and light. In 1984, he was awarded the Pritzker Prize. The exhibition’s opening was 19 October and the architect himself gave an interesting talk.

JORGE ELIZONDO
THE VOICE OF MY HANDS

On 18 August, this exhibition was inaugurated with a talk where the artist spoke to us about the thirty-five pieces, spanning three decades of his work, which had been brought together and organized into specific groupings. They are the manifestations and responses to a reaction between artistic work and the practice of vital activity, such as the perception and interpretation of the real, imaginary, immediate, and universal—as well as one’s own—world.

RON MUECK

The extraordinary sculptures of the Australian Ron Mueck, which portray with alarming accuracy the distinct stages of life of the human being, came to MARCO in his first major show in Latin America. Suspended in time, his meticulous creations reconcile us with our own self, which at times force us into the world of the other, exposing with great mastery the physical and emotional states. The exhibition’s opening was 17 March and the artist’s assistant Charles Clarke gave an informative talk about the work of Mueck.

DOMINIQUE LEMIEUX
IMAGINANDO PERSONAJES

A show of the creative work of the French Canadian costume designer Dominique Lemieux was inaugurated on 17 February. The artist herself gave an interesting and well-presented talk where we witnessed how, through drawings, sketches, preparatory notes, accessories, and photographs, she establishes the principles of a narration in which the costumes define the characters of different personages in a performance.

BEUYS Y MÁS ALLÁ. EL ENSEÑAR COMO ARTE
COORDENADAS. MARIO RANGEL FAZ

A direct dialogue of the works on paper Joseph Beuys (1921–1986) in the Deutsche Bank Collection and six of his students documents in this exhibition the notable work of Beuys as a teacher and artist during the postwar period in Germany. The dialogue extends to contemporary Latin American art through the presentation of the retrospective of the thirty-year career of the artist and teacher Mario Rangel Faz (1956–2009), shown together with the work of the collectives Grupo Suma and Atte. La Dirección, who was a founding member of both. The exhibition was opened on 27 January with a talk between Deutsche Bank’s curator Liz Christensen and the curator of Coordinates, Vicente Rojo Cama.
