Within early experimental film practices in Mexico, Sarah Minter is among the pioneers whose artistic output has remained active since the 1980s.
Sarah Minter. Rotating Eye. Images in Motion 1981-2015, is the first retrospec- tive exhibition of this artist who, throughout her entire career, has developed a body of work that influences the singular points of the individual as subjec- tivity’s generative root. Her work also responds to the interests of the curato- rial program at the University Museum of Contemporary Art (in Spanish, MUAC) by offering new explorations of local work during recent decades, as well as by contributing to the historiography of artistic and contemporary processes in Mexico—which, together, have helped facilitate the incorporation of technological and digital media through artistic training and that of new consumption spaces for the medium.
This collection is the memory and record of the exhibitions and projects car- ried out by the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. It gathers critical texts, docu- ments, and images connected with the artists, themes, and curatorial ap- proaches that make up the museum’s program. It is offered as a public plat- form, diverse, concise, and accessible, of contemporary cultural production. On this occasion it appears under a joint imprint with Editorial RM.
