Artist: Tomás Díaz Cedeño Exhibition title: wetworks Venue: Yautepec, Mexico City Date: May 20 – July 25, 2015 Photography: images courtesy of the artist and Yautepec There are nine sculptures which comprise Tomás Díaz Cedeño’s first individual exhibition at Yautepec. The sculptures are nearly identical. Each sculpture measures two meters high by eighty centimeters wide, its profile a slight three centimeters. Each sculpture features a sheet of pigmented dental plaster, draped like pale flesh over a stainless steel support structure electrostatically coated in that peculiar beige of the early personal computer. The sculptures stand sharply erect, bolted to the gallery’s concrete floor. The walls of the gallery are bare. The sculptures […]

The second edition of Mexico City’s Material Art Fair presented a selective group of 40 galleries and artist-run project spaces — from 10 countries and over 20 cities — chosen by the fair’s 2015 selection committee, which was comprised of John Riepenhoff, artist and co-owner of Green Gallery, Milwaukee; Beatriz López, Co-Director of Instituto de Visión, Bogota; Chris Sharp, curator and co-founder of Lulu, Mexico City; and Gerardo Contreras, curator and director of Preteen Gallery.
The fair’s 2015 public program featured an engaging series of daily conversations organized by the New York City-based online publication, Triple Canopy, under the title “How Far is Near.” These included, “In Search of a Model for Life” with Felipe Ehrenberg, Waysatta Fernández, Juan Caloca, and Sofia Olascoaga; “Universal Methods of Design” with Maru Calva, José León Cerrillo, and Prem Krishnamurthy; and “How to Demand the Impossible” with John Gibler, Gabriela Jauregui, and Isaac Torres.
Anna Gritz, associate curator at South London Gallery, curated the fair’s video program, “Sand in the Vaseline,” which featured three individual programs for artists Adriana Lara, Sophia Al-Maria, and Stuart Middleton.
Mexico City-based Distrito Editorial created the fair’s bookstore, presenting an impeccable selection of artist books, books about art, and small, limited-edition works mostly by Mexican artists.
Finally, beneath the stage at the Auditorio Blackberry was the Material Exhibitors Club: an ambitious group exhibition, performance space, and pop-up mezcal bar organized by the Lower East Side art bar, Beverly’s, with complimentary mezcal provided by Gracias a Dios.

One is interrupting the others, constantly trying to steer away from the humor of the fact that the stage they are on […]
