Materia de dibujo / Drawing Issues

is an independent curatorial initiative based in Mexico City since 2011 which is devoted to artistic research and contemporary drawings production with an international scope, as well as to advance the development of new strategies for trans-disciplinary connections.
Our focus involves art as well as other disciplines or media where drawing is a key component for cognitive and production processes.

The objectives and tasks are set in the long term; the activities and research will gradually be materialized as publications, exhibitions, discussions, and workshops.

Materia de dibujo /Drawing Issues will work towards establishing relations and meeting points between different spheres of production and fields of knowledge. It is the opportunity to pursue researches and curatorial approaches through different perspectives and to foster collaborations with other initiatives, artists or collections around the world.
