La Quiñonera is a historical and very impressive creative point in Mexico City, that had its boom in the 90´s. Bands like Caifanes or Café Tacuba started to play here, and Carlos Cuarón had his studio in the house. Now it has reopened its doors for exhibitions, workshops, and as a meeting point for artists from different generations.
In parallel of the exhibition “Antes de la resaca… Una fracción de los noventa” (Before the hangover, a fraction of the nineties) at the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo MUAC, La Quiñonera opened on the 9th of July, 2011 “Espacio Flexible”, a group exhibition gathering Anonymous Gallery from NYC, La Curtiduría Espacio Contemporáneo from Oaxaca, and La Quiñonera from Mexico City.
Spanish urban artist El Tono representing Anonymous Gallery from NY, did an intervention on the house, and I was lucky enough to help him, together with Héctor Quiñones, co-owner (with his brother Nestor Quiñones) of La Quiñonera. (I have a post about that collaboration!).
In this show I participated with my first marble sculpture, titled “Ti prendo e ti porto via”, inspired by one of my favorite books, Ti prendo e ti porto via from Niccolò Ammaniti.
