La Sala de Arte Público y La Tallera, fulfilling its vocation as a bridge between modernity and contemporary art, seeks to focus attention on researching the work of the Mexican muralist in three specific ways: the restoration of the murals in our forum that correspond to his last work period, the digitalization of the documentary archive in our custody, and the eventual search for any contemporary opinions that might challenge the paradigmatic concepts of David Alfaro Siqueiros’ thoughts.

The intricacy of contemporary artistic practices and strategies that have to do with the public dimension of art, its social nature and immersion into politics, not to mention the constant critical blitz from the media, will be the core topics we will cover in the coming years of work. In that way, transgressive art production as well as debates and forums open to airing different opinions, will strengthen the institutional profile of this art gallery.

To boost set budgets, the Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, in collaboration with La Tallera cultural center located in the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos, and another of the places donated to Mexican culture by David Alfaro Siqueiros, will develop, starting in 2012, a new international residency program for artists, critics, scholars and curators of art that will expand the local/global dialogue while at the same time moving some of the artistic and intellectual production to some other Mexican city.
