TAPE
May 2013
Ex-Arzobispado #36-a, Col. Observatorio, Mexico City
 
TAPE es una exhibición que se presenta dentro del marco de Roving Project. En su version México, organizada por Beka & Jobb se apropiará de un Video Centro, aún en operación, ubicado en la colonia Observatorio presentando el trabajo de 11 artistas de diversas nacionalidades y prácticas que se vinculan por un interés objetual, su carácter lúdico y el uso del absurdo.

 
La exhibición se configura a partir de una condición inicial: la palabra/objeto TAPE; a manera de juego los artistas responderán a ésta abordando las posibilidades que se disparan tanto física como conceptualmente.

 
El objetivo de el juego/exhibición  en esta ocasión es explorar procesos de producción individuales y colectivos incorporando operaciones de azar.

Roving Project is pleased to present TAPE, an exhibition in Mexico City organized by Beka & Jobb, which will appropriate an old video rental center still in operation.

TAPE features the work of several emerging artists from different nationalities and diverse art practices whose work shares an exploration with objects, ludic qualities and elements of the absurd.

Artists were invited to participate, in a game-like format, by creating a piece in response to the word/object TAPE. The final result for the exhibition will be the combination of the different points of view together in the same space. The objective is to generate a game/exhibition that explores individual and collective production proccesses that incorporate chance operations.

The game’s structure comes from an uncontrolled situation and the open physical and conceptual possibilities that the initial condition triggers.

Artists:
ALLAN BREWER / MARLON DE AZAMBUJA / JOSHUA JOBB / ANTONY JOHNSON / ULRIK LÓPEZ / HALI MALSTBERGER / SEAN NAFTEL / MAURICIO ORDUÑA / BEKA PERALTA / JESSICA PÉREZ / CALIXTO RAMÍREZ
 
Curated by Beka Peralta & Joshua Jobb
