A Contemporary Art Exhibit at Fabrica de San Pedro – Beautiful Mexico

I am not a big fan of contemporary art, however, when I saw the sign for this exhibit I thought it would be a good experience for my girls. We didn’t know what we would find but we enjoyed our afternoon not only because of the art but also because of the beautiful location in beautiful Mexico. Fabrica de San Pedro is a very old fabric factory that is also part convention center and part cultural center for the city of Uruapan in Michoacan, Mexico. And here’s our contemporary art experience in images :-)

This artwork portrays a father and a son. You can see the son’s hands inside the father’s. And the face is actually a mask of the father with the son underneath, thus the inset eyes.

If you are enjoying this post please share it with your friends :-) Gracias!

My first thought was, “A piece of cloth with messy stitching?” After reading the placard I discovered this is a map of the mountains of Banff, Canada. Once you realize what the artwork represents, it changes your perspective. Pretty cool actually :-)

The line of dots on the floor aren’t supposed to be crossed, to protect the artwork, I presume.

These portraits were digitally printed on thick, individual, cloth cords. I have never seen photography on this type of media.

One of my favorites, these carvings were made directly from an entire log of wood. I love the detail in the toes :-)

And I have no idea what this represents. I tried to read the placard but I still couldn’t make out the meaning of this “art”. I guess some things can be left to the imagination!

Taylor, on the left, is my little artist and she especially loved the exhibit. All three of us had a great mother / daughter day and hopefully, we will see more exhibits at Fabrica de San Juan in the future :-) Signing off, Tina
