Mario García Torres’s practice uses a number of mediums like film, photography and sound in order to expose history and other intricacies of the art system. Garcia Torres’s work aims to use minor events and personal tales as the basis for creating, narrating and reconstructing his reportage in order to uncover the limitations of memory and the subjectivity of the historical and cultural record.
Solo exhibitions of Garcia 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 such as 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).
