Contemporary Art Auction for La Casa


With gratitude to our parents Leticia Carillo and Maquío Clouthier del Rincón and in honor of their memory, we dedicate this event to them. Their example, commitment and generosity taught us to value the importance of education and the arts as a way to enrich our minds and our souls. Their legacy motivates us to turn the space of La Casa into a reality that benefits the community. We also dedicate this project to our grandmother, Cristina del Rincón, mother of Maquío, about whom we never stop thinking. We treasure the gift of being able to grow with a granny who was an avid reader, who travelled to distant worlds and met unimaginable people through books. Moreover, our grandmother was a selftaught painter who raised awareness of art and beauty. She was someone who filled the house with paintings, charcoal and pastel drawings, books and above all the stories and lessons that not only surround us today, but also encourage us to work and collaborate with the artistic and cultural community.


The artistic community of Sinaloa and the rest of the country brings together the Casa del Maquío to raise funds that help us to cover our operational costs. This allows us to continue with our programme of activities and establish the precedent of carrying out this event year after year, with the mission to benefit the organization. La Casa de Maquío is a cultural and educational, non-political, non-religious, diverse and inclusive space with the goal of creating socially responsible leaders and citizens. In 2014, Leticia Carrillo, widow of Clouthier, donated her house and founded the Civil Association of La Casa del Maquío. Her intention was to make a reality the creation of a space to develop full time leaders and citizens who would become agents of change. Through the process of rescuing the house itself, a home for the community was also rescued which allowed for the coming together of people, a place of learning, participation of citizens and the development of leaderships skills.

and photography. I am interested in the formal aspects of language and representation, in viewing objects as carriers of potential meanings and in strange situations that cause wonder.” The pieces that make up this series arise from the need to explore, in a pictorial way, the relationship between an uninhabited space and the body that imagines it. A subject is reduced by its condition of being and space is re-signified by its presence. It is through these devices of representation and seemingly simple geometries, that he also poses the constant pictorial dilemma between abstraction and figuration, between the evocative and the descriptive.

His works have been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Caracas, Bogota, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Madrid, Mexico City, Amsterdam, Paris, Hong Kong among others.

LOT 8 Florence, Italia, 1936 Friedeberg lives and works in Mexico City. He is a Mexican artist and designer best known for his surrealist work filled with lines, colors and ancient and religious symbols. His most well-known piece is the “Hand-Chair” a sculpture/chair designed for people to sit on the palm, using the fingers as back and arm rests. Friedeberg began studying as an architect but did not complete his studies as he began to draw designs against the conventional forms of the 1950s including implausible designs such as houses with artichoke roofs. Friedeberg became part of a group of surrealist artists in Mexico which included Leonora Carrington and Alice Rahon, who were irreverent, rejecting the social and political art which was dominant at the time. Awards include the Córdoba Argentina Biennale in 1966 (2nd prize), the Solar Exhibition in Mexico City in 1967 (1st prize), the Argentina Engraving Triennale in Buenos Aires in 1979, the

institutions in Mexico, England, Spain, France and Russia. In Pintado’s works the presence of nature in contrast to the artificial is somewhat ambiguous, it is not clear if the landscape dominates the artificial or if it is nature that has invaded these built spaces. These are reflections presented to us by an artist who is not afraid to show his ability to recreate aesthetically and conceptually challenging compositions, drawing in views from the present, the past and the future. Select solo exhibitions include Medición del vacío (Vacuum Measure), Monterrey, Mexico (2013); Trayectoria del conocimiento (Path of Knowledge), dialogue with José María Velasco, National Museum of Art (MUNAL) Mexico City (2012); Incisión al romanticismo INSICION to Romanticism) Expanded painting at the National Museum of San Carlos Mexico City (2012); Contemplación del modernismo (Contemplating Modernism), MUSAS Museum, Sonora, Mexico(2011).

OTTO LOT 12 Mexico City, 2000 From an early age, Otto showed an interest in art and a fascination for creative practices, mainly sculpture. Beyond the domains and conventions of the plastic arts, with regard to color, shape, structure, balance, clarity, equilibrium and geometry, it is that Otto manifests himself as an artist at the limits of Modern Art and Contemporary Sculpture. Through Otto’s works we can observe a young artist who presents us with a curious and self-taught new perspective.

artist exploring sculpture, painting, drawing, installation, photography and video. She uses everyday materials, specifically objects of domestic use, as well as objects she finds such as tree leaves and stones. She also uses delicate objects like lace but combines them with materials that are mainly used by men, creating both a tension between them, and also a harmonious fusion. Smeke’s critical route in her work hinges on a feminist philosophy, with an important influence from Simone de Beauvoir, Heléne Cixous and the gender issues posed by Judith Butler. In addition, she reaches into literature the use of language and writing for inspiration. Her work also has an ecological facet, taking ideas from the Anthropocene theory. Smeke analyzes what it means to be a woman in our contemporary era, evoking ideologies and tasks imposed on women throughout history, but recapturing them from the perspective of the joy of being a woman. Her work touches on the problematic issue of feminicide and the suffering of women in a phallogocentric society. Her work is often performative. She takes long walks and sometimes col-

MINE RVA CUEVAS LOT 17 Mexico City, 1975 Cuevas is a conceptual and socially engaged artist who creates sculptural installations and paintings in response to politically-charged events, such as the tension between world starvation and capitalistic excess. Cuevas documents community protests in a cartography of resistance while also creating mini-sabotages — altering grocery store barcodes and manufacturing student identity cards — as part of her non-profit Mejor Vida Corp / Better Life Corporation. She lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico. Several of the artist’s works take the form of re-branding campaigns — exhibited as murals and product designs — that question the role corporations play in food production, the management of natural resources, fair labor practices, and evolving forms of neo-colonialism.

Minerva Cuevas attended the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas UNAM (1997).
