We are pleased to welcome 9 outstanding professionals into residency at the hacienda this Summer. Their various backgrounds in the arts and sciences will surely provide a very rich platform
Our winter 2017 session was curated by interdisciplinary artist Valeria Montoya from Mexico City, who selected five artists with cultural backgrounds tied to Mexico, the United States, Puerto Rico, Portugal and Germany.
During three weeks, artists explore their own relationships to vital resources such as land, fire, water, plants, food and communication, forging them into both established and imagined cultural representations.
In 2016, we are deepening our investigation of space, place and community, dedicating the winter session to spatial design and the summer session to performance art, directed by guest curators in art and architecture.
The residencies we sponsor act as a catalyst for creativity, as well as new relationships between participants, the surrounding environment, and our community.
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.
Daniel Cristóbal (MEXICO) hand-knitts and installs a delicate net structure throughout our site, constructing a series of awe-inspiring in-situ sculptures.
Alberto Díaz (ARGENTINA) creates a sculpture/installation series in paper, tape, and clay, over two residency sessions (2009 and 2011).
