The Arts Center of San Luis Potosí (CEART San Luis) presents for the first time the work of the Mexican visual artist Said Dokins with the retrospective exhibition Runaway Writings (Escrituras en fuga), celebrating 22 years of artistic trajectory.
Walls and Borders The first section, Walls and Borders, encompasses works that reflect on the idea of border from a formal notion, as a line, as a contour, to its effects as a geographical and political limit, capable of defining lives of those who are placed on one side or the other.
Traces, scars and silences is the second section of the show. It looks at the idea of inscription as a mark that runs through space and time, but also though bodies.
Finally, the third section, entitled Sparkles. On time and memory, explores the investigations of the artist on light writing, which can be traced back to 2004, up to his latest project, Heliographies of Memory, that he develops since 2015 with the photographer Leonardo Luna, intervening with his light calligraphy monuments and plazas around the word.
Since the beginning of our activities in the area of graffiti and street art, we have gained a lot of experience and knowledge and we strive to pass this on. We have been offering workshops for several years, enabling children and young people to immerse themselves in this diverse, colorful and exciting world. Be it the design of a wall or the design of individual T-shirts, we know what children enjoy and put together their own programs for schools, clubs, institutions and educational organizations in the form of workshops.
