FOCUS: Mario García Torres
Apr 11, 2015 - Jun 14, 2015

Mexico City–based Mario García Torres is best known for his engaging cinematic narratives that explore and reveal the overlooked and now-buried histories and personalities of 1960s and 1970s conceptual art. García Torres researches evidence, myths, and particular stories to retell some of these forgotten narratives from an important moment in art history, while also filling in missing gaps with fictional threads. The artist presents these accounts in his varied body of work, which includes video, slide installations, photography, and sculpture. His films and slide installations are mesmerizing, both visually and intellectually, and often use antiquated technology to parallel the era he is revisiting, while exploring the divide between truth and fiction.
