Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros – SAPS

Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros is a museum and research center, but also hosts countless of lectures and panel discussions on contemporary art. The SAPS is dedicated to give continuity to the technical and thematic concerns of the muralist in relation to contemporary art.

Directed by Taiyana Pimentel, the Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros (SAPS), located in the neighborhood of Polanco in Mexico City, and the Casa Estudio La Tallera David Alfaro Siqueiros (La Tallera) in Cuernavaca, Morelos, were donated to “the people of Mexico” by David Alfaro Siqueiros (1896-1974), along with an important collection of paintings, graphic works, drawings, mural studies and projects, as well as his personal archive and library.

On December 12, 1973, 25 days before he died, he expressed his desire that these spaces wold be preserved to promote his work and ideas, as centers of analysis and experimentation for the “public art” of the future. Since then the SAPS has been promoting and spreading the legacy of Siqueiros. In recent years, the murals at the SAPS were restored and more than 80,000 documents and materials were digitalized.
