The purpose of this program is to preserve, conserve, divulge and protect the work of Javier Marin and other contemporary artists, through the development of three projects: the Collection, Legal Actions in Defense of Artistic Creation, and Exhibitions.
This project focuses on cataloguing the Foundation’s collections in a documentary archive, which includes photographic, journalistic and bibliographic records.
This initiative aims to motivate and support legal actions for the protection of art and its creators, taking into account that the existing legal framework for the protection of intellectual property is limited in its effectiveness, as is the struggle to curb the falsification of art objects. The program’s imperative is to make a responsible revision of these areas, in order to generate a proposal for substantial modifications of the current legislation.
This area involves the management and curation, in collaboration with various institutions and organizations, of exhibitions of Javier Marin’s work and that of other artists and themes, on a national and international level. To date, the Foundation has collaborated in the organization of fifteen exhibitions in Mexico and abroad.
Since 2017, an important part of the Foundation’s efforts have been directed towards the creation of a cultural center in the Former Thread and Textile Factory of San Pedro, located in Uruapan, Michoacan. To this end, the Foundation, together with the Terreno Baldio Arte gallery and professionals from the artistic and cultural sphere, has coordinated an initial program that includes renovation work for the adaptation of a large exhibition gallery, a shop displaying products related to the current exhibition, a photographic record of the renovation process, and research on the history of textile production in Uruapan.
