Our Educational Program conceptualizes and carries out different projects to fulfill our mission of approaching, professionalizing, experimenting with, and discussing the visual arts, as well as to dialogue with other artistic and non-artistic disciplines.
Our projects develop in the field of non-formal education, from creative spaces where all participants can share the aesthetic experience and be enriched and express themselves. The learning involved in these projects is significant learning: that is, what is known, researched, and experienced represents something transformational to everyone.
The Educational Program takes into account the different angles for action and thinking that we can use to approach art: production, collecting, sales, theory, restoration, exhibition, expectation, museography, curating, and teaching, among others. Based on those links, we develop our programs.
We are working on three parallel projects:
We conceive of research as open-ended, on-going, and formal.
Through an educational research project, with a representative sample and an anthropological method combining the quantitative and the qualitative, we critically and formally analyze the circumstances of young artists and art students enrolled in higher education in Mexico. The results are the starting point from which we establish programs directly aimed at contributing to overcome the difficulties we find in our study.
Our aim is to develop other projects involving art criticism, theory, and history, and everything that might be of interest and a contribution to the thinking and discourse of contemporary art.
This is a space to facilitate artists-in-training coming together with experts who have already made their way in their fields. It becomes an experience of reflection, dialogue, and experiences to build the real principles needed in thinking about, making, and the work involved in the visual arts.
This is a laboratory for ideas and artists-in-residence, nestled in the Yucatán jungle, which supports the practice and experience of artistic and creative projects in different disciplines. This project will have an impact on the cultural development of the Sac Chich community, where it is located.+ MORE INFO
