Exhibit

Guadalajara artist Jaime Rodriguez opens his exhibit “Extracciones” at the Centro Cultural Ajijic, Saturday, June 1, 6 p.m.

Says the artist: “These urban extractions retrieve information from walls and façades in strategic spots in downtown Guadalajara that could disappear overnight because of a lack of conservation or interest. The extractions are a direct registry of reality from which to observe its layers and the passing of time. They can reach even society’s deepest values since they represent a change in space. Or else they possess a historical-artistic value as a representative emblem of the collectivity, the circumstances being varied, similar to the official recognition of other objects of the tangible legacy.”

Rodriguez continues: “Several pieces are shown in this exhibit, along with the exact location of their point of departure. Thus, a point of reference may be established in order to witness and gaze at the totality of the surroundings from which the registry was obtained.”
