Nosotros

La Curtiduría es un espacio cultural independiente fundado en el 2006 cuyo propósito es abrir un centro para el diálogo, intercambio y producción artística contemporánea en Oaxaca. Ubicado en una antigua curtiduría en el viejo barrio de Jalatlaco en el centro de la ciudad, con un espacio abierto de 300 metros cuadrados y un departamento para albergar a dos artistas. El programa esta estructurado a partir de tres ejes fundamentales: artistas en residencias, espacio para desarrollo de proyectos y exhibición de propuestas artísticas contemporáneas.

Misión

Crear un lugar de trabajo donde puedan compartir y desarrollar proyectos artísticos creadores de Oaxaca y el mundo, simultáneamente en las áreas de pintura, gráfica, ensamblaje, performance, video, instalación y demás medios de las artes visuales, que requieran de un espacio amplio y profesional para su desarrollo.

Visión

Sentar la base de un proyecto alternativo autosuficiente y sustentable a través del arte, la educación, la cultura y el conocimiento y resguardo de la bio diversidad, que trascienda en el tiempo y se constituya como un referente mundial en términos de beneficios colectivos de calidad.

 

The city of Oaxaca has been transformed throughout the years into a cultural center of high importance at an international level. This cultural growth has been ignored by the professional artistic initiatives aimed at artistic production and formation. The new generation of artists born and residing in Oaxaca has had the opportunity to form a group thanks to the institutions operating independently from the government, particularly those created by the artist Francisco Toledo. Unfortunately, there are few independent spaces outside of these margins that foster reflection and community dialogue.
La Curtiduría is an independent cultural space founded in 2006, whose purpose is to open up a space for dialogue, and exchange of contemporary artistic production in Oaxaca. Located in an old tannery in the center of the historic village of Jalatlaco, la Curtiduría has an open space of 300 square meters and an apartment for housing two artists. The program is structured upon three fundamental axes: artists in residence, spaces for developing projects, and exhibitions of contemporary artistic proposals.
Mission
To create a place to work where artistic projects from Oaxaca and from the rest of the world can be shared and developed simultaneously in the areas of painting, graphic art, assemblages, performance, video, installation, and other visual arts that require a professional and open space for their development.
Vision
To establish a base for an alternative, auto-sufficient, and sustainable project through art, education, culture, with an understanding and protection of the biodiversity—transcending time and constituting a global reference point in terms of a high quality of collective benefits.
