Jason Mena is "On the Move" Solo Exhibition at Trailer Park Proyects

Today we will be wxhibiting at Art and Muscia Fextival Loiz-A-rte in Loiza Street in Santurce since 5:00m. Free music and family envinronment. Don't miss out this great event.

In On the Move emerging artist Jason Mena shows us over 60 different photographs taken during the past years while being ‘on the move’ from country to country exhibiting his work. The photographs are experimental process-based pieces taken by the artist during his international travels while wandering the city by foot; capturing the objects, actions and situations that provoked his curiosity. It is the artistic process that most artists never get to show and most people never have the chance to see; images that provide us with a privileged and highly personal insight into the creative mind of the artist.

Since these photographs do not have a specific methodology and were not developed as part of a series, it is very difficult to exhibit them in a conventional setting. For this reason, these works were selected to be shown at Trailer Park Proyects. TPP is also on the move, making it the ideal environment for this type of work.

Mena is quickly becoming the next great artist to come out of Puerto Rico. His non-stop work ethic and constant search for an increasingly impressive new series is affording him the opportunities to thrive within the international art scene. This might be the last chance you have to acquire Mena’s work at a reasonable price.

· Constantly traveling around the world for shows, residencies and projects, Mena’s artistic career has recently taken off. He has exhibited his work at ARCO (Madrid, Spain) and ZONA MACO (Mexico City, Mexico), and had a solo exhibition at Galeria Luis Adelantado in Valencia, Spain. Selected exhibitions and residencies include: Luis Adelantado Mexico Inaugual Exhibition,“We have as much time as it takes,” Wattis Institute, San Francisco, California, “Foto Imagen” the Biennale of Photography, Dominican Republic, “SF Tropical” at Queens Nails Projects, San Francisco, California,

Residency at Hotel Charleroi, Belgium and Residency at Centro ADM, Mexico DF.
