Meeting with Maria Inés Rodriguez
Director of CAPC - Museum of contemporary art, Bordeaux
Monday 28 September 2015, 6:30pm
As Runo Lagomarsino, Maria Inés Rodriguez has a double anchor, both in Europe and in Latin America. Based on Runo Lagomarsino’s works, but also on other artists and experiences of both banks, Maria Ines Rodriguez provides for this meeting at La Criée a look on the South American art scene and on the globalized one, through an approach both historical, political and social.
Since 2014, María Inés Rodríguez is the director of the CAPC - Museum of contemporary art (Bordeaux, France).
From 2011 to 2013 Mrs. Rodríguez held the position of chief curator at the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) in Mexico City, where she led the public, collections, and exhibition programs, curating and developing ambitious projects with Teresa Margolles, Nicolás Paris, Yona Friedman and La Ribot.
From 2009 to 2011 she was chief curator at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y Léon (MUSAC) in Spain. In 2008 and 2009 she was the curator of the Satellite Programme at Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris where she introduced the French audience to young international artists such as Vasco Araujo, Mario Garcia Torres, Agathe Snow, Irina Botea, Angelo Plessas and Andreas Angelidakis.
María Inés Rodríguez studied Fine Arts at the University of Los Andes in Bogotá and at the Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (atelier Christian Boltanski), and holds a graduate degree from the Ecole Superieure d’Art Visuel in Geneva. As an independent curator, she has mainly worked on exhibition and research projects related to appropriation strategies of the public space in art, design, architecture and urbanism. Her experience as an independent curator includes collaborations with the Bronx Museum (New York), CA2M (Madrid), Le Plateau (Paris), Centre d’Edition contemporaine de Genève, Ex-Teresa – Mexico and ARCO Foundation. Her last exhibitions included Teresa Margolles for the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (CA2M) in Madrid, Beyond the Super Square for the Bronx Museum of the Arts in New York, Alejandro Jodorowsky for CAPC musée in Bordeaux and Leonor Antunes at this same institution next November.
