Event description

TOPIC: "“Reading Images: The Practical Complexities of a Critical Approach to Visuality"

Carolina Magis Weinberg (Mexico City, 1990) is a whether reporter and a sight specific artist. In 2013 she received an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from the National School of Painting, Engraving, and Sculpture “La Esmeralda” in Mexico City. In 2017 she obtained a dual graduate degree in Fine Arts and Visual and Critical Studies from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco as a Fulbright-García Robles, FONCA-Conacyt, and Hamaguchi scholar. She has been part of solo and group exhibitions in Mexico, the Philippines, Colombia, Argentina, France, Germany, Italy, and the United States. In 2018, she was beneficiary of the FONCA Young Creators scholarship. Between 2019 and 2021 she has worked as the Artistic Director of La Revista de la Universidad de México. 

Through her critical-artistic practice, Magis Weinberg explores the multiple cultural, accented, and linguistic dimensions of perception, representation, and the contemporary experience of a globalized world. Expanding on her interdisciplinary interests, her Master in Visual and Critical Studies’ thesis discusses the possibility of applying the concept of the accent, typically a matter of spoken language, to the field of visual arts. Throughout the many forms of her practice, she seeks to complicate, re-signify, and de-familiarize themes such as color and language, through material explorations of natural/cultural phenomena like real and fake snow, or globalized mass-produced objects like party streamers and confettï. Overall, the work of Magis Weinberg is located in the meeting point of visual and written language.
