Founded by Bosco Sodi and directed by Carla Sodi, Fundación Casa Wabi is a non-profit, civil organization that aims to promote collaboration and social commitment through art. The foundation adopts its name from the concept “Wabi-Sabi,” which represents a vision of the world focused on the acceptance of the ephemeral and the imperfect.
Located on the Oaxacan coast, Casa Wabi was designed by the renowned architect Tadao Ando (Pritzker 1995), to promote of interaction; where the residents and the communities of the region come together.
The Foundation currently operates two residency programs, Casa Wabi in Oaxaca and Casa Nano in Tokyo, two exhibition spaces, one in Casa Wabi and another in Santa María, the venue in Mexico City, and clay and a film program on our site on the Oaxacan coast.
The new exhibition space in Santa Maria la Ribera main objective is to showcase the work of young artists in Mexico City. Placing special emphasis on the production process, Santa Maria is designed to foster a dialog that contributes to the development of the local art scene.
