Sean Kelly is delighted to present Candida Höfer – In Mexico, the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Internationally recognized for her meticulously composed, large-scale color images of architectural interiors, Höfer traveled to Mexico in 2015 to make this body of work as part of the cultural exchange program Mexico-Germany Dual Year, which brought different cultural, scientific, musical and educational projects to Mexican audiences in 2016-17.

For her first project in Mexico, Höfer traveled throughout the country photographing a diverse group of buildings that range from the Baroque extravagance of the Museuo Nacional del Virreinato to the Neoclassical order of Palacio de Bellas Artes Ciudad de México, with its Art Nouveau and Art Deco interiors. Capturing over 600 years of architectural history from her precise perspective, Höfer’s photographs document not only the physical details of these interiors but also capture the spirit and essence of each space.

Höfer’s Mexico project was organized by Galeria OMR with support from the Goethe Institute-Mexiko and the Ministry of Culture of Mexico. This body of work has been exhibited in Mexico at the Antiguo Colegio De San Ildefonso, Mexico City; Centro de las Artes, Monterrey; Museo Amparo, Puebla and was most recently on view in the United States at the North Carolina Museum of Art. To document this body of work, there was an important book published with the generous support of UBS, which was listed as one of the best art books of 2017 by the New York Times.
