Raymundo Sesma

Mexican artist Raymundo Sesma has been on a mission to create “social architecture” since the early 90s. During the past decade, he has transformed and enlivened a number of banal, overlooked, and forgotten architectural structures that would otherwise be languishing in parts of southern and western Mexico. The local inner city youth from these parts who volunteer to help Sesma fulfill these artistic visions are given the opportunity to effect change within their own neighborhoods while learning firsthand that art isn’t always framed and hung on museum walls.


Sesma has lived and worked between Milan and Mexico since 1980. His works can be found in such collections as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y., The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris, The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico and la Dundacao Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisboa. He has participated in the Venice Biennale twice, and was chosen to represent Mexico in 1993. Among the shows from this past decade we can mention Nova Totius Terrarrum Orbis, Kunstmuseum, Bonn.
