Enrique Norten Retrospective at MARCO: Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey

3 Jul – Oct 2008


MONTERREY, MEXICO – The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey presents inTENtions, an exhibition that shows the development of the architectural projects of the firm of this important, award-winning Mexican architect.

From the initial idea to the ribbon-cutting, the sketches, maquettes, plans and projections of each building show the stages of gestation of a new being, the processes and variations, formed through the suggested feedback during its different phases, in which it adapts itself and adjusts to the setting that it will occupy.

Architecture, being an endeavor of human creativity, has made a place for itself within contemporary art by its use of forms and materials in a search to satisfy the senses beyond a mere shelter.

TEN Arquitectos, the firm founded by Norten in 1986, characterizes itself by favoring modernity and at the same time making use of tradition, both in small-scale projects such as furniture designs to entire living, commercial and urban spaces.

Along the way the firm has received numerous awards and recognitions that acknowledge its talent, such as those that will be on view in this exhibition.

PUBLIC OPENING: 4 Jul 2008, 8:30pm. Admission free

GALLERIES: 6 to 11 / Second Floor | EXHIBITION DATES: July – October, 2008

NUMBER OF WORKS: Thirty-five projects presented through maquettes, photographs, plans, renderings, vectors and video.

The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, MARCO, is one of the leading cultural institutions in Latin America with the objective to promote international contemporary art, enhancing Latin America’s visual arts knowledge.
