The Poetics of the Return
Mario García Torres

Opening: March 12, 2021

VIRTUAL TOUR

In this exhibition curated by Taiyana Pimentel, a parallel is established between the post-conceptual practices and the immersion in the historical construction for which García Torres has been known, with the beginnings of his aesthetic strategies in the cities of Monterrey and Mexico; It is analyzed through early works, the connotations of the sense of space and landscape born early in the city that welcomed him in his formative days and which are concepts that have accompanied him in his later artistic practice. Based on this premise, works such as the painting Cerro de la Silla, 1998 and the video Open Letter to Dr. Atl, 2005, made in Guadalajara, can be appreciated.

The Poetics of Return proposes a selection of works that have mostly been presented in international venues but which will be the first time they will be exhibited in the city such as: Merz, Rzemmmm Zeeeeerm Emrzzzzz (At Fibonacci Pace), s / f, The Schilieren Plot, 2013, La Fiesta fue yesterday (a fragmented narrative on the brief history of the Dynamic Museum), s / f, Unspoken Dailies, 2003-2009, Tetela, 2015 and Silence's Wearing Thin Here Mario García, s / f, among other.
