Three years after co-founding GALCHI gallery in Chile in 1997—a space devoted to temporary exhibitions that brought together an entire generation of post- dictatorship Chilean artists—Felipe Mujica moved to New York City. Since then, he has developed a body of work strongly influenced by Latin American materialism and the social and political movements of the late 1960s and 1970s. His practice takes on a variety of forms, including installations, textiles, drawings and prints; the hybridity of his objects evoke curtains, flags and panels at once. The geometric patterns he uses to create them are culled from different sources: from popular posters of the Latin American Socialist coalition to present-day Japanese visual culture, and the ambivalence of their forms give rise to a number of unstable associations. Mujica’s works engage in a direct conversation with architecture, generating playful and relational situations that are reminiscent of Brazilian Tropicalismo.
