Rodrigo Azaola


My work is an ongoing research on the intersection of art, historical narratives and international relations.

Among my recent projects are SIB’s, École Supérieure d'Art et de Design d'Orléans (2020); Armida, C3 Contemporary, Melbourne (2019);  A little better, Airspace Projects, Sydney (2018); 1812-2016, Muca Roma, Mexico (2017); Phantom Pain, SIART La Paz Biennial (2016); etc. Some of the venues where
I have also exhibited are the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris; Centre d'Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona; Havana Biennial, Cuba; Jumex Museum, Mexico City; AS/COA, New York; National Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow; X-Teresa Museum, Mexico City; CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, among others.
             
I’m a founder member of the H. Committee of Human Vindication, an arts collective that operated as a universal pseudo-organization founded in 1947, and Modelab, an artistic initiative that explores public space with recent projects held at Les Traversées du Marais Festival, Paris (2019); Taipei Artist Village, Taipei (2019); Manila Biennale, Philippines (2018), etc. As response to the pandemic lockdown, I launched Radio Ensayo, a decentralized web radio station focused on experimental sound practices and visual arts. 

Recently, I've been awarded the Mexican Endowment for Art Creators 2021-2023.

My  writing on art, culture and politics has been published in international magazines, such as Letras Libres, Nexos, Foreign Affairs, Artslant, etc.
