    MARSO presents A grain in the eye of the mountain, a collaborative exhibition by Daniela Libertad, Fabiola Menchelli, and Leslie Moody Castro.

  • THE CURVATURE OF LIGHT

    Fabiola Menchelli 
    Curated by Paola Jasso

    Fundación Casa Wabi
    Dr Atl 62, Colonia Santa María la Ribera
    Ciudad de México, México

    September to January 2020
    Monday to Fridays 10:00 to 17:00 hrs.
    Saturdays & Sundays 10:00 to 15:00 hrs.

    Fundación Casa Wabi is pleased to present the last exhibition of the 2019 exhibition cycle at Casa Santa Maríala Rivera. Fabiola Menchelli closes this season with an exhibition that talks about the cycles, the rotation of the stars, and the way we measure the passage of time, observing the light.

    One of the most interesting approaches of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity is that in the vicinity of a sufficiently massive astral body, the path of light can be bent by gravitational force. Apparent variations in the position of distant stars can be observed when they pass near a star or mass, effectively doubling the light. In La Curvatura de la Luz, Fabiola Menchelli’s work shapes form through multiple exposures, thus intervening space and reality.

  • Y LUEGO, LA FORMA

    Ramiro Chavez, Alejandra Venegas, Yeni Mao & Fabiola Menchelli

    Galeria de Arte Mexicano Sala: GAM
    Gobernador Rafael Rebollar #43, San Miguel Chapultepec, CDMX, México
    September 2019 to January 2020
    Monday to Thursday 10:30 to 18:00 hrs.
    Fridays 10:30 to 15:00 hrs.

    The exhibition Luego la Forma, this fall at Galería de Arte Mexicano, elucidates on a process native to the plastic arts, the conjuring of the empirical from the intangible. The show weaves together the practices of Ramiro Chaves, Yeni Mao, Fabiola Menchelli, and Alejandra Venegas. The practices tease out drawings, paintings, sculptures or photos from the gooey transitional space between source and realization.

    This show is about process as expression, a physicality birthed from an impression, the form shaped from an ethereal whiff. The works decipher the way in which form is made. These practices are each an elucidation, a paraphrase, a decoding.

  • PROXYCO

    A Room Is Made Up Of Other Spaces

    PROXYCO is pleased to present A Room is Made Up of Other Spaces, an exhibition with works by Ana Elena Garuz, Veronica Lehner, and Fabiola Menchelli, and curated by Daniel Garza Usabiaga. The work of these artists constantly addresses the notion of space or engages with specific spatial situations for their production and presentation. Although working in different media – installation, painting, sculpture or photography – they privilege non-figurative and constructivist solutions and share, among other things, an interest in color and other pictorial concerns that can be tied to the legacy of monochrome painting and geometric abstraction. For this exhibition, they actively participated in different ways in its articulation and final arrangement. Having the architecture of PROXYCO as the starting point, the presence of their artworks creates a complex spatial scene and establishes a new set of situational relations.

    Lehner’s work, produced for this exhibition, takes as its departing point the architecture of the gallery. One section of the window’s façade seems to unfold toward the inside through a solution that gathers architectonic, sculptural and pictorial concerns. Ana Elena Garuz’s wall pieces highlights the presence of a constructive material and explores it as a plastic surface. Her work presents a study in line and materiality, and its relation with architecture, by alluding to the presence of a quotidian object: blue tape. Through multiple exposures and different constructivist solutions, Menchelli creates abstract compositions that seek to trace, translate, balance and expand the space within the frame in a simple gesture. As such, these interventions refuse to conceptualize space as a passive receptacle. Instead, their works deal with its transformation. It is space as a moment of change, a passage from one configuration to another.

    Bajo el Sol Azul
    07.OCT – 16.DEC 2017
    COCKTAILS GALLERY WEEKEND
    Friday November 10th, 7 – 10 pm

    Bajo el Sol Azul presents a series of new cyanotypes created during Menchelli’s 2015 residency at Casa Wabi in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, in 2015, and then developed at the University of Cincinnati, where Menchelli was a Visiting Artist from 2016-17.

    Menchelli’s practice is fundamentally a photographic one but constantly pushes the limits of photography, creating unexpected dialogues with other artistic disciplines. Bajo el Sol Azul reveals the poetics of observation and the subtle revolution that occurs through profound contemplation.

    These new cyanotypes take the Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s observatory at Casa Wabi and translate its organic curves into luminous exposures of blue, reconnecting the concrete structure to the sky it was designed to observe.
