About the artist:
Felipe Mujica (b 1974, Santiago de Chile) studied art at the Universidad Católica de Chile. Just out of art school, in 1997, he co-founded with Diego Fernández and José Luis Villablanca the artist-run space Galería Chilena (GCH), which operated between 1999 and 2005. It was first a nomadic and commercial art gallery and later became a collaborative art project, a curatorial “experiment”. In the early 2000s, Mujica moved to New York City where he currently lives.
Parallel and interrelated to his own work, Mujica has organized and produced many collaborative projects, which include mostly exhibitions and the editing, designing, and publishing of artist books. He has exhibited at the Pérez Art Museum Miami; Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín; Röda Sten Konsthall, Gothenburg; XII Bienal FEMSA, Zacatecas; 32a Bienal de São Paulo; CRAC Alsace, Altkirch; The Carpenter Center for The Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts; 12 Bienal de Cuenca; Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City; Fondazione Merz, Turin; El Museo del Barrio, New York; 3rd Guangzhou Triennial, Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou; and A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro. In 2022, Mujica will start a research project related to textile-based communities with the support of OSMOS Station residency in the Catskills. Upcoming solo exhibitions in 2022 will be held at La Tallera, Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Cuernavaca; Museo de Artes Visuales, Santiago de Chile; and Corporción Cultural de la Municipalidad de Recoleta, Santiago de Chile. He is represented by Proyectos Ultravioleta, Ciudad de Guatemala, von Bartha, Basel, Die Ecke Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago de Chile, and Bis | Oficina de Proyectos, Cali.
