Jorge Méndez Blake
Nos sentamos, escuchamos, discutimos
Only by appointment due to the developments around COVID-19
November 07 2020 – February 19, 2021
OMR is pleased to present Nos sentamos, escuchamos, discutimos (We Sit, We Listen, We Discuss), the second solo show by Mexican artist Jorge Méndez Blake (Guadalajara, 1974). In the middle of a global pandemic, our society faces two other crises: a democratic and a poetic one. By exploring the amphitheater as the poet’s birthplace, Jorge Méndez Blake attempts to represent poetry as the creator of comedy and tragedy of society and, therefore, of democracy. Through this exhibition, the amphitheater is presented as a symbol of the possibility for collective dialogue where we sit, listen, and discuss as a community.
We invite you to visit Jorge Méndez Blake’s online viewing room here.
