PROYECTOSMONCLOVA was established in 2005 in Mexico City as an experimental platform for emerging artists. Expanding and consolidating its program over the years the gallery has evolved into one of the most important forums for contemporary art in Mexico, emphasizing on the dialogue between local and international artists from different generations.

In 2012 the gallery moved to a newly designed location in Colonia Roma, which offers 2 exhibition spaces and a fully equipped video room for large-scale cinematographic projections thus offering their artists architectonic diversity and a platform of various formats. PROYECTOSMONCLOVA stages 6 to 10 exhibitions per year as well as a public program with talks, screenings and performances to enrich its discursive potential.

Chantal Peñalosa

Chantal Peñalosa (1987, Tecate, Mexico) studied fine arts at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California and the University of São Paulo. She was awarded the Acquisition Prize in the XIV edition of the Biennale of the Northwest and was awarded FONCA fellowships in the Young Artists category (2013-2014) and (2015-2016). In 2014 she was selected for participation in the 4th edition of the Bancomer Program for young artists at the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil in Mexico City. The individual works in Peñalosa’s research based practice stem from small gestures and interventions in everyday life, which are meant to expound upon notions of labour, waiting and delay. Repetition is a crucial element in her process, functioning as an allusion to the absurdity, weathering, and alienating effects of work. For Peñalosa repeating actions evoke latent states in which dialogue appears unilateral and time suspended.
