DESCRIPTION

The exhibition dedicated to the Mexican artist Mario Garcia Torres (Monclova, 1975) brings together, for the first time in full, all the work produced by Garcia Torres during the eight years of research conducted into One Hotel in Kabul (Afghanistan), the place of residence and artistic production, between 1971 and 1977, of Alighiero Boetti, one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. The exhibition includes video installations, faxes and postal works, wooden and metal plaques, wall inscriptions, postcards, and graphic materials, along with some materials never shown before, being designed specifically for the exhibition space, as well as works by Alighiero Boetti selected by the Garcia Torres especially for the exhibition, some of which are to be added to the museum’s permanent collection.
