Satellite programme
second edition proposed by María Inés Rodríguez
from 20 January 2009
until 22 March 2009
Jeu de Paume, Paris

Born in the mid-1970s, Mexican artist Mario García Torres revisits the history of conceptual art. This being a movement that asserted the primacy of the idea over its implementation, sometimes all that remains of conceptual “works” are sketches and documents. Mario García Torres likes to trace the origins of certain pieces in order to question the nature of art and explore a history whose protagonists include John Baldessari, Sol LeWitt and Robert Barry.

Mario García Torres was one of the revelations of the last Venice Biennale.
