Proyecto Habitar, Curated by Lusa Espino

Todo por la Praxis, Democracia, Santiago Cirugeda, Juan Carlos Robles, Torolab, Ernesto Oroza and Gean Moreno,artists and collectives.

Since the end of the Sixties we have seen a deep reestructuration of cities in terms of morphology and social distribution. Proyecto Habitar highlihgts the "architecture of need" carried away by inhabitants often in a chaotic way. Situations and processes in most cases give way to true cities that sometimes lack social services and basic commodities.

A multidisciplinary art exhibition curated by Luisa Espino with artists and collectives Todo por la Praxis, Democracia,
Santiago Cirugeda, Juan Carlos Robles, Torolab, Ernesto Oroza and Gean Moreno, have registered some of the cases above. Opening Friday October 16, until November 25. Workshops will also be offered.
