After having successively presented contemporary Japanese, Chilean, Caribbean, Moroccan and Papua New Guinea scenes, the 193 Gallery's world tour continues in Mexico, through minimalism.
5 Mexican artists (sculptors and painters) accustomed to major international fairs, present their country through resolutely minimalist works.
Consume always more and faster; more money, more goods, more likes ...
Minimalist "philosophy" is more relevant than ever, as a response to consumerism in the extreme, a necessary need to return to the basics.
Minimalism, an artistic movement born in the mid-1960s in the United States inspired by geometric abstraction, in response to expressionism and popart, is characterized by simple, raw, smooth and geometric shapes. The works are stripped to the extreme.
These artists appropriate the motto of the architect Mies Van Der Rohe "Less is more".
