Mario García Torres’s practice covers a combination of film, photography, sound and text in order to expose history and manufactured nature. García Torres’s work aims to use everyday events, personal tales and art world icons as the basis for creating, narrating and reconstructing his reportage as he works to uncover the limitations of memory and the subjectivity of the historical and cultural record.
Solo exhibitions of García Torres’s work have been presented at Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City (2016); Museum of Modern Art, Fort Worth, US (2015); Pérez Art Museum, Miami (2015); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2014); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2010); Kunsthalle Zürich (2008) and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2007). His work has also been shown in group exhibitions at Sharjah Biennial 13 (2017); Manifesta 11, Zurich (2016); Berlin Biennale (2014); Mercosul Biennial, Porto Alegre, Brazil (2013); dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel, Germany (2012); São Paulo Biennial (2010) and Venice Biennale (2007).
