DESCRIPTION

In the summer of 2008 the Oaxacan artist Francisco Toledo invited sculptor Manfred Müller to hold a series of workshops at the Taller de Papel, the paper mill in San Agustin Etla.  This paper mill is part of San Agustin Centre for the Arts, which is directed by Francisco Toledo.  One of Müller’s residency requirements was to contribute something that he created during the residency to the collection. Inspired by the environment in the workshop at the paper mill, he created “mandiles,” or aprons.  His limited edition apron series is now offered at the art center in Etla.  

Several months ago, Müller decided to create apron prototypes based on this series and give them to several artist friends, so that they would come up with their own interpretations of aprons as one of a kind objects.  SHOPWEAR is the outcome of this project.  Enjoy!
