Mario García Torres: Poetic of Return
On view until August 2021
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MARCO)
Nuevo León, Monterrey, Mexico

MARCO presents the exhibition “Poetic of Return” dedicated to one of the most internationally renowned Latin American artists, Mario García Torres (Coahuila, Mexico, 1975), his first solo exhibition in Monterrey, created and organized by MARCO, which brings together more than thirty works that spans a two decades career of the multidisciplinary artist.

Mario García Torres has explored in his work the appropriation, the repetition, the recreation, and also, the strategies that are approached in the subjects that he chooses. His projects frequently investigate the history of contemporary art, particularly conceptual art, to create a different and captivating narrative through photographs, slide projections, films, sound, text, and video installations. He often juxtaposes facts with imagined scenes, blurring truth, and fiction along the way of his production. His works lead us to consider the subjective nature of historical records, the limitations of memory and the possibilities of perception.
