This project springs from the interest to contribute to a qualitative, and experience-based revision of art learning practices in the Mexican context. The sessions are open scenarios that bring together experienced professionals and people from different educational fields to work together on topics such as: appropriation, exchange, self-organization, learning as practice and experience, non-formal educational approach, the construction of environments for learning, strategies for the multiplication of knowledge, problematizing the possibility of teaching art, among others.
With Sebastián Romo, Rita Ponce de León, Felipe Zúñiga
Rita Ponce de León (Lima, 1982). In her artistic practice, Ponce de León has approached practices such as Butoh dance (of Japanese origin) and she has worked in workshops that approach body and movement as triggers of knowledge. These processes decant in her drawings. Her work has been exhibited at the 32nd São Paulo Biennial; Miró Foundation, Barcelona; Kunsthalle Basel; Biennial of Cuenca (Ecuador); Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Mexico City; Gallery 80M2, Lima; Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City; New Museum, New York; and Centro Cultural Border, Mexico City, among others. Her images have been published in the book Vitamin D2-New Perspectives in Drawing (Phaidon, 2013). In 2016 she received the support of Fundación Jumex for a residence at the Kazuo Ohno Dance Studio in Yokohama, Japan. Currently she collaborates in various projects with Joelle Gruenberg (choreographer and somatic educator), Tania Solomonoff (body artist), Andrés Villalobos (visual artist) and Pablo Pérez Palacios (architect).
