Located in a large private home in the centro of Oaxaca, the residency hosts and collaborates with international artists and non-artists across all fields to support research, conversation and connection surrounding creative work, process and purpose.
Active observation, conversation, reflection are viewed as essential components of a creative practice, used to explore and connect with broader forms of knowledge and alternative ways of living, seeing, learning and creating.
Oaxaca — as a place, community and culture — lies at the heart of the project. We work closely with individuals and organizations to encourage exchange — of ideas, information, traditions, practices, histories and experiences — within each discipline and personal project in hopes of developing a broader and more engaging creative dialogue across countries, cultures and fields of research.
We aim to provide not only a temporary experience, but also a lasting and growing network of international artists, creatives, and thinkers. Resident approach varies — some use this as an opportunity to step back, slow down, and explore shifted or expanded perspectives within their current work. Some dive in deeply to an already existing interest or project.
Others spend time investigating a topic far outside their habitual practice. Residency structure is based on length of stay. Residences include lodging and amenities as well as various lectures, events and meals. Events are based on participant and community interests and resources. P O C O A P O C O is a multi-disciplinary, research-based residency and cultural exchange project offering a platform for creative exploration and a space for collective intelligence.Welcome to CN Traveller.
The sun-bleached town of Puerto Escondido, on the coast of Oaxaca, became a little less of a surfers' secret last year when hip Mexican hotel group Grubo Habita opened their latest design-led retreat Hotel Escondido read our Hot List review on an untamed stretch of beach.
But this chilled-out spot, known for the legendary 'Mexican Pipeline', has long had its low-key fans who come for more than just the waves. Fans that include Brooklyn-based, Mexican-born artist Bosco Sodi. Known for his large-scale, vividly-coloured and textured works, Sodi has been coming to Puerto Escondido since he was a teenager, and it is with Japanese architect Tadao Ando that he has now realised his vision for an art foundation here, which he hopes will "function as a contemporary version of Marfa".
Called Casa Wabi - after the Japanese ideal of wabi-sabiwhich honours the beauty inherent in life's imperfections or transcience - the six artist residences, two studios, an exhibition and other multi-purpose art spaces stand starkly between endless beach views on one side, and views to the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range on the other.
The spare, concrete structures softened with thatched palm roofs and warm teak furniture designed by Tadao with Sodi's wife Lucia Corredor, an interior designer and mid-century enthusiast. And around all this, a acre botanical garden that will gradually become home to an outdoor contemporary art collection.
It all opens tomorrow Saturday 25 October with the exhibition of a site-specific installation by French conceptualist Daniel Buren. And beyond this Sodi aims for the foundation to not only host artist residencies but social and educational programs for local communities.
