Fundación Alumnos47 is a non profit organization that stimulates the creation and exchange of knowledge in order to explore current issues through contemporary art.

Its programs are held both in its cultural space as well as in a mobile device that goes around Mexico City. The cultural offer of the Foundation is developed by its education, curatorial, editorial and sponsorship programs all based on research processes.

Its venue, located in the San Miguel Chapultepec neighbourhood, is a Resource Centre for Research and Learning (CRAI in Spanish) that houses a library and archive specialized in contemporary art and artists' books.

Fundación Alumnos47 welcomes everyone!

For the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, Fundación Alumnos47 will give a talk on its mission, creative processes and commitment to exploring relationships and knowledge through contemporary art. The Foundation will present the documentary and book of its first curatorial project in 2012: Proyecto Líquido. Miedo.

Imagine, by artist Pedro Reyes, a piece commissioned by the foundation for Proyecto Líquido, will be exhibited and since it is a series of instruments created from firearms, a concert will be held with the musicians who designed the pieces and other experimental musicians in Venice.

Enrique Ježik, an artist who has worked closely with Alumnos47, will present a performance called Círculos Concéntricos [Concentric Circles], curated by Jessica Berlanga Taylor, curator for the Foundation.

Through this program, Fundación Alumnos47 hopes to be able to share some of its projects, expand its network of collaborators and exchange deeply felt experiences with everyone attending the ART WEEK.
