Joaquin Segura’s highly‐diverse oeuvre meditates on violence as an omnipresent motif in contemporary life. His recent production is visibly concerned about the nature of power & political apparatuses nowadays, constructing a practice deeply fascinated by the fissures & contradictions in extreme ideologies and the crucial role these have played in the globalization of socio-political crisis, mainly explored through constant references to specific historical events. Through his unpredictable works, Segura aims to reach an art of destabilization, elaborating a poetic of sabotage through apparently random acts of provocation, which relate to impotence, denial & deception, here and now.
His action, installation, intervention and photographic work has been extensively shown in solo & group exhibitions in Mexico, USA, Europe & Asia, in venues such as Sala de Arte Publico Siqueiros, Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, La Panaderia and Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo(Mexico City), El Museo del Barrio, White Box & Apexart (New York) LAXART & MoLAA (Los Angeles), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid), NCCA (Moscow) and Spanska Kulturinstitutet Stockholm (Stockholm), among many others.
His work has been widely reviewed and featured on major art publications & newspapers such as Flash Art, Adbusters, Art Papers, Codigo, Art Nexus, Discipline, Celeste, Reforma & The Washington Post. In 2008/09, Segura was an artist-in-residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program, New York, NY and at the 18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica, CA. In 2012/13, he'll be having artist residencies at Hangar (Barcelona), MeetFactory (Prague) and Impakt Foundation (Utrecht).
Segura is also a founding member & board advisor of SOMA, Mexico City. www.somamexico.org
Joaquin Segura's current residency at the MeetFactory is fully supported by Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes/CONACULTA (Mexico), with generous assistance from Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores through its Agencia Mexicana de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo (Mexico).
