SOMA Summer: Call for Applications
SOMA SummerSOMA Summer

Soma Summer will introduce participants to the very dynamic art scene in Mexico City. A number of visits to museums and artists studios are scheduled. At the end of the program, participants will show their work in a open studio event.

Though not exclusively, workshops and seminars this summer will focus on methods of appropriation and re-use including discussions about the ready- made, copy, détournement, and remix culture.

Application procedures and a detailed list of activities scheduled for this summer can be found at or contact Carla Herrera-Prats at [email protected]

The deadline to register for the program is Friday May 13.

SOMA Summer is part of SOMA, an experimental pedagogical project launched in 2010 conceived to promote discussion and exchange in the field of contemporary art. Our goal is to produce a counterpoint to the dynamics of art schools, museums, and galleries.
