Ricardo Rendón

Born in 1970 in Mexico City, Mexico.
Lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico.

Gathering different materials and including multiple formal solutions, the works of Ricardo Rendón act as a complex diary where the actions are registered, documented and accumulated. In this sense, a sheet of paper, a wood board or the exhibition space is transformed into a setting determined by the creative experience, an ambient where the work is presented as a fact and evidence of the creative execution.

The works of Ricardo Rendón are an appendix of construction or destruction practices that enunciate the moment where things happened, forms that propose the action as leitmotiv. (David Miranda Museo Experimental El ECO, 2007).

Rendón has participated in exhibitions at the Reina Sofía Museum, the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Videobrasil, Videolisboa, the UCSD University Art Gallery, the Museo Experimental El Eco, the Museo Tamayo, the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo MUAC and the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City.

Ricardo Rendón has achieved international awards and recognitions, his works have been exhibited in the most important contemporary art forums and belong to contemporary art collections like Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation CIFO – Miami, the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo MUAC, The Jumex and Coppel Collections – Mexico, The Bank of America – USA and Fondation Daniel Langlois – Quebec. He is member of the Sistema Nacional de Creadores CONACULTA-FONCA.
