The Residencia Art Project: Where Creativity Meets Mexican Artistry

Residencia Art Project - Playa Del Carmen

In the heart of Playa del Carmen lies a hidden gem that's more than just an art project; it's a thriving hub of contemporary Mexican artistry.

The Residencia Art Project, founded in 2010, is a non-profit organization with a profound mission – to support and propel Mexican artists onto the international stage while nurturing a culture of art collecting in the Mexican Caribbean.

A Creative Haven for Artists

The Residencia Art Project stands as a sanctuary for artists from Mexico and beyond. It offers coveted residencies, open studios, and captivating exhibitions. These events provide artists with the sacred gift of time and space to explore their creativity, unfettered by constraints. Simultaneously, they offer the public a window into the artists' worlds, a chance to witness the birth of art, and an opportunity to delve deep into their creative processes.

A Pillar of Mexican Art

Within the tapestry of the Mexican art scene, The Residencia Art Project is a shining thread that has woven the careers of many esteemed artists. It's more than a platform; it's a launchpad for success. But it's not just for artists; it's a vital resource for the art-hungry public, serving as a gateway to contemporary Mexican art and educational enlightenment.

A Multifaceted Mission

The Residencia Art Project wears many hats:

  • Artist Residencies: It provides coveted residencies for artists hailing from all corners of Mexico and the world. This allows them to breathe life into their artistic visions without constraints.

  • Open Studios and Exhibitions: It opens its doors to the public through open studios and exhibitions. Here, the public can marvel at the works of art in progress and gain insights into the creative processes that birth them.

  • Art Collecting Advocacy: The project passionately advocates for art collecting in the Mexican Caribbean, inspiring individuals to take home pieces of Mexican artistry and culture.

  • Educational Initiatives: It offers educational programs that deepen one's understanding of contemporary Mexican art, creating a space where minds can flourish in artistic exploration.

A Glimpse into the Artists' Worlds

A testament to its impact lies in the artists it has nurtured:

  • Violeta Horcasitas, a versatile Mexican artist who dabbles in photography, video, and sculpture. Her work often delves into the complexities of identity, gender, and the human body.

  • Lizette Abraham, a Mexican artist whose figurative paintings and drawings explore the profound themes of memory, loss, and longing.

  • Roberto Rojo, another Mexican artist who specializes in sculpture and installation art. His work explores the intricate relationship between nature, culture, and the human experience.

Nurturing the Next Generation

The Residencia Art Project believes in paying it forward. In 2023, it's introducing "Residencia Emergente," a program dedicated to providing residencies to budding artists who are just embarking on their creative journeys.
