Under the Volcano

3 - 10 February 2020 Mexico City

In 2019, Brooke Benington began its residency programme in Mexico City, based out of Studio Block M74.


Conceived as a practical residency, it has been an opportunity for the artists to explore and integrate themselves in a small but rapidly growing arts community and network. Beginning with Simon Linington in April, over the next ten months seven artists have participated in the residency programme: James Lomax, Amanda Moström, Rob Branigan, Clare Burnett, James Fuller and Anna Gonzalez Noguchi. As the residency progressed we observed how each subsequent artist brought in influences and reflections of the city to the work they were producing. Each approached this in their own distinct way and produced very different work that still holds true to their core practice, and the essence of the City.
