Mario García Torres: Illusion Brought Me Here

Walker Art Center

25 Oct 201817 Feb 2019

This is the first US survey on the work of Mario García Torres. Using a variety of media, including video, installation, photography, painting, and sculpture, García Torres aims in his projects to address the subjectivity of historical records and the limitations of memory.

On view is a selection of 45 works created over the past two decades as well as site-specific installations conceived exclusively for the exhibition. A newly commissioned piece titled “Silence’s Wearing Thin Here” (n.d.), which the artist compiled from the soundtracks of his previous media-based works, serves as a dynamic audio framework to the show.

Mario García Torres (b. 1975, Monclova, Mexico) received his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2005, and currently lives and works in Mexico City.
