Descripción del Premio
Fundación Casa Wabi and ArtReview are pleased to announce the fourth edition of their open-call residency prize for three artists/collectives wishing to enter a dialogue with the communities around Casa Wabi in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. About Casa Wabi Fundación Casa Wabi is a non-profit organisation that encourages a dialogue between contemporary art and the local communities of Puerto Escondido, Mexico City and Tokyo. The name comes from the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, finds beauty and harmony in simplicity, the imperfect and the unconventional. Its mission is focused on building social development through art, expressed through five core programmes: residencies, exhibitions, clay, cinema and a mobile library. Casa Wabi is located in the Pacific coast, 20 minutes away from the Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca airport. Situated between the mountains and the sea, the main location was designed by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando and on the basis of an initiative developed by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi. ... Facilities include a multipurpose room, six independent dormitories, two closed studios and another six open studios, a 450 m2 exhibition space and various work areas that collectively create the ideal setting in which to recharge one’s energy amongst other artists. In recent years, the Foundation opened a Clay Pavilion designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese Architect Alvaro Siza, a Guayacán Nursery Pavilion by the Mexican studio Ambrosi Etchegaray, a Chicken Coop by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, a Compost Pavilion by the Uruguayan studio Solano Benítez, and recently, the High-temperature kiln and the gardens by Mexican architect Alberto Kalach.
