By BBN Staff: The Embassy of Mexico in Belize invites the public to the exhibit: C脫RDOBA/MATHAR Contemporary Practices in Embroidery and Painting, curated by Elizabeth Calzado.

The cultural event will be held on Friday, August 16, 2019, at 7 pm at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Belize City.

The exhibition will showcase the contemporary embroidery works of Pilar C贸rdoba and the recent paintings of Manel Mathar, curated by the visual art expert Elizabeth Calzado.

Calzado is an artist, curator, and editor. She specializes in preventive conservation of contemporary art, which she has offered through her independent platform Paricut铆n. Recent exhibitions include Clasificaci贸n detonante 4051.

Investigaci贸n 61 + investigaci贸n 111, hosted by Impronta Casa Editora in Guadalajara to which she contributed original sculptures, and no alcohol, no mota-no droga, an exhibition of works by artists Edgar Cobi谩n y Cristi谩n Franco which she curated at La Murci茅laga in Mexico City.

Pilar C贸rdoba鈥檚 work covers different medium like cross-stitched embroidery, collage, drawing, engraving, and photography. A crafting process is the central concept in her work, reflecting upon current automatism and recalling to traditional handmade techniques.

Human anatomy, nature and its textures, relationships, optical illusions, and patterns are recurring subjects in her practice, which she explores in a tactile rather than analytical way.

Manuel Mathar was born in 1973, in the city of M茅rida, Yucat谩n.

Mathar is a self-taught artist., some of his solo exhibitions have been 鈥淲ith talk and gasoline odor鈥, at the Arte Actual Mexicano Gallery in Monterrey in 2012 and that same year, 鈥淐ostra鈥, at MUCA Roma (Universitary Museum of Arts and Cience); 鈥淪tep confined by land not firm鈥, of 2011, in the Museum of the City of Quer茅taro; 鈥淵ears of revenge鈥, in Proyectos Monclova Gallery in 2007, and 鈥淪upremo鈥, in the Alternativa Once Gallery in Monterrey, Nuevo Le贸n, in 2005.

Mathar鈥檚 work belongs to different art collections, such as the Tax Administration System, Carrillo Gil Art Museum, Pedro Coronel Museum, Arcos Dorados Collection, Regional Museum of the City of  Quer茅taro, Rufino Tamayo Museum, Museum of Arts and Sciences of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, Pinacoteca de Nuevo Le贸n and Museum of Modern Art of Saint Etienne, France.
