Felipe Mujica (b. 1974, Santiago, Chile) studied art at the Universidad Católica de Chile. After art school he co-founded the artist-run space Galería Chilena, which operated from 1997 to 2005: first as a nomadic and commercial art gallery and later as a collaborative art project, a curatorial experiment. In early 2000 Mujica moved to New York City where he currently lives and works. Parallel and interrelated to his own work, Mujica has organized and produced numerous collaborative projects, including exhibitions and books. Mujica has exhibited work in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Latin America, with solo shows at Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico D.F.; Proyectos Ultravioleta, Ciudad de Guatemala; Nuno Centeno, Porto; Galerie Christinger De Mayo, Zürich; Die Ecke Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago; The Shop – Vitamin Creative Space, Beijing; Message Salon, Zürich; and Centro Cultural Matucana 100, Santiago. Recent group shows include: Ir para volver, 12 Bienal de Cuenca, Cuenca (2014); Ways of Working: The Incidental Object, Fondazione Merz, Torino (2013); Parque Industrial, Galeria Luisa Strina, São Paulo (2012); Contaminaciones Contemporaneas, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Universidad de Chile, Santiago (2012) and Museu de Arte Contemporãnea da Universidade de São Paulo (2011); Critical Complicity, Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna (2010); The Nature of Things – Biennial of the Americas, Denver (2010) and Third Guangzhou Triennial, Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou (2008).
Inspired by French philosopher Roland Barthes book Writing Degree Zero, the exhibition identifies pictorial practices that fit neither the concept of an autonomous, truly abstract painting nor that of the ready-made, an object transposed from a specific context.read more »
