Delirios Urbanos
Anibal Catalán, Blanca González, Operación Hormiga en colaboración con Jetro Centeno, Circe Irasema, Rolando Jacob, Jimena Schlaepfer, Daniel Ventura
curated by Josefa Ortega
Seven Mexico City based artists were commissioned to put together a project that reflects on some the predicaments that concern the population of cities. The pieces start out from a joint reflection that allowed each artist to determine a theme from which to develop a work with a critical perspective on what it means to live currently in cities.The project revolve around diverse phenomenon, social and environmental situations triggered by uncontrollable urban growth, ruled and sponsored in most cases by voracious economic dynamics of the savage contemporary capitalism.
With works by Anibal Catalan, Blanca González, Operación Hormiga + Jetro Centeno, Circe Irasema, Rolando Jacob, Jimena Schlaepfer and Daniel Ventura the show constitutes a group of diverse perspectives that articulate a complex though which calls us to critically rethink the dynamics that we co-participate in as we inhabit and build the city.

El Cuarto de Máquinas is a space for experimentation through art projects. From the beginning it has focused on the production and promotion of young or emerging artist exhibitions, experimental projects and the development of a curated show program.
