Temporal. Programa de residencias aims to reflect on the practice of artistic residencies from the perspective of collaboration between individuals and hospitality. Most of these artists’ projects revolve around the ethical problems and conditions of work (understood as an occupation in a broader sense), not in response to a curatorial premise but rather to the logic of the research that each one of is engaged in.
Seasonal or temporary agriculture depends on the behavior of the rains. Climate change has given rise to greater uncertainty.
Temporal arises from an invitation to four artists—Marwa Arsanios, Antonio Bravo, Núria Güell and Cristóbal Sarro—for a short residency near the MUAC and the Amparo Museum (Mexico City and Puebla, respectively). This project seeks to adapt to the temporary and for the processes of each artist to govern the type of exchange between host and guest, even allowing us to modify the initial rules.
Núria Güell’s project is a collaboration with minors affected by the sexual exploitation of children in Mexico. Together they selected pictures of biblical scenes, accompanied by comments that can be heard on audio guides about unequal power relationships and violence between women and men in our society.
