Within the Artists-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host the artist Noé Martínez. Born in 1986 in Morelia, Michoacán, he studied at the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado la Esmeralda in Mexico City. Noe works with the legacy of native peoples and colonial history to make visible problems that afflict contemporary Mexico. Language, identity, the process of colonisation in the 16th century, the processes of struggle and vindication of indigenous communities, as well as social and community manifestations, are recurring topics in his pieces, which range from editorial projects to drawings, videos and installations. Noe currently lives and works in Mexico City and will be staying in Studio Azul during January 2023.
