A Room of One's Own
The city of Tijuana offers a perfect platform to explore topics of international commentary and critique through cultural and artistic expression. We know what your gut reaction is—I’ve got to cross the border (or something along those lines)you’re not sure if it’s worth the trip—but the purpose of this show is to change your reaction and expectations. Join us at A Room of One’s Own for a full-sensory cultural experience that draws on the feelings of friction versus comfort and safety. The show will feature installation, audio and video art, paintings and photography, presented in the context of a home to make you question your relationship with art, ownership and intimacy.
A Room of One’s Own, which opens from 5 to 11 p.m. Saturday, July 19, 2008, at Terra Sur at KM 17 on the Tijuana/Rosarito toll road, is one of only a handful of endeavors that the San Diego-based curatorial collective known as Adapta Project has undertaken this year. Earlier this spring, the arts group created a themed exhibit for the new Rob Wellington Quigley-designed Children's Museum in downtown San Diego. Quigley is one of the acclaimed architects from both sides of the U.S./Mexican border who are designing the seven single-family detached homes in the first phase of Terra Sur.
Adapta Project was founded in 2007 to offer an alternative perspective for showing and viewing artistic expression outside of conventional venues. This collaborative initiative of Jaime Davis, Kinsee Morlan and Jorge Tellaeche to curate and create art in response to differing spaces is intended to positively impact the experience of everyone involved, and expand existing opportunities currently available for presenting art.
