About

Tecoh, a 17th century hacienda in the Yucatan jungle transformed by Jorge Pardo, is the departure point for this symposium examining the complexities of place, locality, culture and ecology in the commissioning and production of site specific works. Through the lens of contemporary art, design and architecture, speakers address site specificity, place making, commissioning and the institutional models needed to explore these issues. Confirmed speakers are: David Adjaye, Jorge Pardo, Alex Coles, Michael Govan, Huib Haye van der Werf, Pamela Lee, Claudia Madrazo, and Miguel Corzo. This symposium is organised in collaboration with the TAE Foundation (Transformación, Arte y Educación, A.C.), a non-profit organization based in Mexico and focused on cultural evolution through the integration of Art and Nature for social development.
