SABER ACOMODAR: Art and Workshops of Jalisco 1915-Now presents an investigation of the work carried out in studios and artisanal workshops in Jalisco, Mexico. Focusing on the last 100 years of production, the works included in the exhibition showcase collaborations between artists and artisans (e.g. potters, carpenters, blacksmiths, jewelers, sign painters, and printmakers) who work and live in western Mexico. The result of these intersections is the integration of contemporary ideas and both pre-colonial techniques and methods introduced by the Spanish. Recently, artists have employed traditional materials and practices to produce complex conceptual objects and installations.

ARTISTS: Daniela Aguilar, Jorge Méndez Blake, Jose Dávila, Claudia Fernández, Christian Franco, Mathias Goeritz, Fernando González Gortázar, Cynthia Gutiérrez*, Daniel Guzmán, JIS, Juan Kraeppellin, Gonzalo Lebrija, Rubén Méndez, Fernando Palomar, Jorge Pardo, Carlos Ranc, Chucho Reyes, Eduardo Sarabia, Juan Soriano, Luis Miguel Suro, Taller Ditoria, Eduardo Terrazas, Mario García Torres, Francisco Ugarte, Workshop of Timoteo Panduro.
* Member of the National System of Art Creators 2016-2019 of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts, Mexico.
