Artemio Narro

ARTEMIO (b. 1976) refers to himself as the “Rolls Royce” of contemporary Mexican art. A founding member of the alternative art space, La Panadería, ARTEMIO is part of the generation of Mexican artists that came of age in the mid-90s who proposed artistic alternatives in video, installation and performance to the rise of neo-Mexican art and painting of the 80s. His experimental multimedia work stems from the appropriation and reinterpretation of pop cultural elements as in his Rambo 2001, in which he edited out all the physical and verbal violence from the original movie. Previuos exhibitions include Otra de Vaqueros, CECCH, Centre d'édition contemporaine, Genève, Geneva (2007); Rising Stars: North Latin Americans, Galeria Nina Menocal, Mexico City; Perdidos en el despacio, Fundació Espai de Arte Contemporáneo, Girona; Distor, Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2006); T1 Torino Triennale, Tremusei, Turin; Mexico Attacks!, MADC Museo de Arte y Diseño Contemporáneo, San José, Queremos Rock!, Queens Nails Annex, San Francisco, CA (2006),Seducidos por el accidente, Fundación Luis Seoane, Coruna (2005); and Sólo los personajes cambian, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey.
