PRODUCT: Tania Pérez Córdova: Smoke, Nearby
SIZE: 10.25” high x 8.25” wide
MATERIALS: Hardcover
Tania Pérez Córdova’s (Mexican, b. 1979) sculptures bear signs of quotidian events that, if looked at carefully, expose a complex network of social relationships. Seemingly static, her works—such as a borrowed gold earring suspended from a bronze cast and a clay platter with the impression of an active debit card—hint at the lives of others and encourage viewers to complete narratives, by recognizing what, or who, is missing.

This catalogue was occasioned by the Mexico City–based artist’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States, and features essays by the exhibition’s curator, José Esparza Chong Cuy, Pamela Alper Associate Curator at the MCA, and Magalí Arriola, an art critic and independent curator living in Mexico City, as well as an illustrated catalogue of works conceived and sequenced by the artist herself.

108 Pages, published by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
