The Mistake Room (TMR) is pleased to announce the launch of TMR Guadalajara—a new yearlong initiative of residency-based exhibitions and artist projects in Mexico’s second largest city. Artists will spend a month living and working at Museo Taller Jose Clemente Orozco—the historic former residence and workshop of the late Mexican muralist. At the culmination of their residency the work produced will be installed in the space — transforming the site into an exhibition. This project will be done in collaboration with PAOS (Programa Anual de Open Studios)—a residency and alternative cultural education organization supported by the State of Jalisco’s Ministry of Culture and the Instituto Cultural Cabañas. Over the past year that it has resided at Museo Taller Jose Clemente Orozco PAOS has helped strengthen the development of conceptual art in Mexico by advocating for and implementing experimental discursive programs.
TMR Guadalajara will complement PAOS by introducing international rotations into their residency component. The inaugural project of TMR Guadalajara will be a residency-based exhibition by artist Henry Taylor. Taylor will conduct his residency in January 2016 and present an exhibition that will open to the public on January 30th and remain on view through April 2nd, 2016. Future artist participants for the remainder of 2016 will be announced in late Spring.
TMR Guadalajara will launch in January 2016 to coincide with the inauguration of The Mistake Room’s new group exhibition, Histories of a Vanishing Present, opening at its Downtown LA location on January 6, 2016.
TMR Guadalajara: Henry Taylor is organized by The Mistake Room and curated by Cesar Garcia, TMR Director and Chief Curator.
