Mexico City–based artist Mario García Torres creates cinematic narratives that explore obscure histories and personalities associated with conceptual art of the 1960s and 1970s. He presents his projects in a variety of media, including video, installation, photography, and sculpture, and he often uses antiquated technology, such as 16-mm film and slide projections, to parallel the era he is revisiting. For each work, García Torres researches evidence and myths related to relatively unknown events from the larger, more well-known moments of that specific period in art history.
