As a vestige of the involved artists’ multiple and diverse experiences, Bitacoras presents a reflection of the creative life that originates from Casa Wabi’s residency program in its headquarters in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. As part of a series of interpretations of the collection, the exhibition consists of 154 pieces by 66 national and international artists who were part of the programme between 2014 and 2022.
Works of 66 artists and creatives from different latitudes, from Mexico, Chile, Colombia, France, Belgium, Brazil, Monaco, Australia, Canada, Argentina, United States, Dominican Republic, Switzerland, Spain, Holland, Venezuela and United Kingdom come together in this group show; with 155 pieces based on themes such as architecture, nature, the use of the house and its relationship with the artists and the body.
Casa Wabi was created in 2014, initially in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, at the initiative of Mexican artist Bosco Sodi. Its main objective is to generate a space for coexistence that allows residents and communities in the area to get closer, as well as to promote collaboration and social integration through the arts. “We are convinced that a personal encounter with art has a positive impact, which is why we seek to generate spaces for dialogue and coexistence that enrich those who participate to our programmes,” adds Alberto Ríos.
