The residencies we sponsor act as a catalyst for creativity, as well as new relationships between participants, the surrounding environment, and our community.
For three weeks, six creative professionals in art, design, architecture and cultural anthropology were in residency. The exhibition showcases their creative explorations and resulting projects.
Five renowned artists and culture professionals with a unique mix of talents, from intricately designed embroidery to monumental land art, will be in residency this Summer.
It is summer now, and the rain’s turn at the hacienda, settling the “creative dust”, replenishing our water sources, and clearing out the air for next year’s programming.
Over the course of the next 3 years, we are commissioning three past architecture alumni to design and build two new art studios in our center.
Immense thanks to the first 8 residents of 2012! Their creativity, adaptability and energy made our first session of the year a very fruitful and enjoyable one:
Two Guapamacátaro alumni, Mark Clare (IRELAND) and Julia Mandle (USA) succeed in creating artworks that are political without being “preachy”.
Sameena Sitabkhan (INDIA/USA) carries out a conceptual scope of our site and brings forth a draft for future land use developments, including a community center.
