Claudia Pérez Pavón

The recipient of the Tamayo acquisition award, Pérez Pavón has become a staple for the top Contemporary art curators in Mexico City, such as for Sylvia Navarrete, Christe Fállman, Mats Nilsson and Gabriel Mestre.  Part of her allure in the Latin-American art world is her masterful treatment of the topic of identity which she often illustrates through her choice of uncommon materials such as canvases that are comprised of thousands of yards of nylon string or the music boxes that are assembled and disassembled to reveal complicated elements of identity in its interior.
