MEXICAN ART AND OBJECT
Gallery specialized in contemporary artistic and artisanal manifestations of Mexico. A curatorial approach that preserves and expands upon traditional mythologies and anthropology. Storytelling through nomadic collections, forever joined by their birthplace.
MANO is a platform that exposes international audiences to the diversity of contemporary art and design produced in Mexico, and connects the Mexican-American community with our motherland. Our doors are open to our community, and to anyone who is interested in exploring our heritage as we create a unique space for great Mexican artists to be seen and the next generation to emerge.
THREE CLIMATES THREE TEXTILE GEOGRAPHIES OF MEXICO
30 JUNE – 1 OCTOBER 2023
Since ancient times, ancient cultures knew that time could not be separated from space. It was understood that humans measured the passage of their lives on Earth by comparing it to their surroundings, drawing analogies between themselves and nature.
In this exhibition, we seek to bring together in a single space and a single moment three geographies and three diverse times represented by different artists, weavers, and designers who have managed to express geographical narratives from their environments and interpretations through textiles. We can observe how textiles have the ability to be the connecting thread between time and space, between art and utility, between ritual and everyday life, between the past and the future. And how, between these two opposites, a third one emerges, which is capable of uniting them within a cyclical and repetitive movement. Between the warp (space) and the weft (time) of a fabric, it is the hand of the weaver that generates movement. It is the third time, the present time, that gives life and generates movement, being the bridge that connects and emerges from these two extremes through the exercise of spinning narratives.
