CONTEMPORARY DESIGN IN MEXICO
TRAVELING EXHIBIT, 2014
Tucked away in the colourful Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City, a small and neatly curated show sheds light on a thriving contemporary design scene. De Ida y Vuelta (which loosely translates as ‘Back and Forth’) consists of 250 prototypes and finished objects by 60 Mexican designers, most of who have only been in operation since 2010.
‘The premise of the show is that ideas, skills and traditions go back and forth between designers and craftspeople,’ explains Mexican curator Ana Elena Mallet. New works by established names such as Emiliano Godoy, Hector Esrawe, Ariel Rojo and Oscar Hagerman are present, but Mallet has purposefully sought out young designers working alone and in collectives.
