Mario García-Torres (Monclova, 1975) is an artist currently living in Mexico City. Through a personal and intimate research-based practice, his work investigates the structures and politics that make art possible, mainly using blind spots in recent art history and employing gestures normally related to the immaterial legacy of conceptual art. Some of the most important solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2007), Kunsthalle Zürich (2008), Berkeley Art Museum (2009), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2010); and the Museo MADRE, Naples (2013). Recent solo exhibitions include Neugerreimschneider, Berlin; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Perez Art Museum, Miami. He has also participated in international exhibitions such as the Berlin Biennale (2014); the Mercosul Biennial, Porto Alegre, Brazil (2013); Documenta 13, Kassel, Germany (2012); the São Paulo Bienal (2010); and the Venice Biennale (2007).
