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.

Christian Jankowski

Christian Jankowski (1968, Göttingen, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. He was appointed chief curator of Manifesta 11, which took place in Zurich in September of 2016. In his artistic actions and media artworks, he makes use of film, video, and photography, as well as painting, sculpture, and installation. Jankowski’s work consists of performative interactions between himself and non-art professionals, between contemporary art and the so-called ‘world outside of art’. During the course of his artistic career, Jankowski has collaborated with magicians, politicians, news anchors, and members of the Vatican, to name just a few. Jankowski registers these performative collaborations using the mass media formats in which he stages his work –film, photography, television, newspapers. This procedure lends his work a pop cultural appeal. Jankowski’s work can be seen both as a reflection, deconstruction, and a critique of a society based on spectacle.
