Mario Garcia Torres (Monclova, 1975) is an artist currently living in Mexico City. He received his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (2005). In his work Garcia Torres explores the potential of a diverse range of media including photography, film, performance in order for it to serve as a tool in his own re-examination of concerns related to history and conceptual art practice in which there is always a time or location displacement. In so doing, he derives an new idea from history and reality.Read More
