Tezontle, a sculpture practice from Mexico City, will present on their work and experience in NYC in a lecture titled Avoiding Architecture. Identifying with Mexico’s Pre-Hispanic heritage and the abstract work of the Mexican modernists of the mid-20th Century, Tezontle curates found and self-made objects in the process of generating innovative, formal, and material narratives. Tezontle was founded in 2014 by Carlos H. Matos and Lucas Cantú.
