OMR is pleased to present Nos sentamos, escuchamos, discutimos (We Sit, We Listen, We Discuss), the second solo show by Mexican artist Jorge Méndez Blake (Guadalajara, 1974).
In the middle of a global pandemic, our society faces two other crises: a democratic and a poetic one. By exploring the amphitheater as the poet's birthplace, Jorge Méndez Blake attempts to represent poetry as the creator of comedy and tragedy of society and, therefore, of democracy. Through this exhibition, the amphitheater is presented as a symbol of the possibility for collective dialogue where we sit, listen, and discuss as a community.
We invite you to visit Jorge Méndez Blake's online viewing room here.

In the midst of a global emergency, just below the great health crisis there are two other crises: the democratic crisis and the poetic crisis.
