Massinissa Selmani (Algiers, 1980) is the first participant of this program. The activities began the first week of September in Perro Bravo`s facilities in DF. The artists worked together on the production of a lithography series with three pieces by Selmani. During two weeks, Carlos Pez was the instructor, editor, and printer of Massinissa`s work, establishing a strong, professional dialogue between both artists. The collaboration of the two artists starts with one of Selamani`s prints, as Carlos Pez then works with this piece to create the final image.

Massinisa Selmani lives and works in Tours, France. This is his first excursion to the American continent after presenting his work with big success in the Biennale of Dakar 2014. Last spring, one of his pieces was presented in the exhibition “Intervening space: From the ultimate to the world” in The Mosaic Rooms in London, UK. Massinissa is currently represented by Galerie Talmart in Paris, where a group of his drawings were selected by the curator of the Centre George Pompidou.

Carlos Pez (Mexico DF, 1971) is a very active artist who lives in Mexico City and Brooklyn, NY. With studios in both cities, Carlos develops his artistic practice becoming “literally” a traveling contemporary art project.

Since 2012, Carlos has been a guest professor for the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he combines the teaching of lithography with producing his own art. Influenced by different cultures and idiosyncrasies, Carlos has prepared a body of work specifically for this exhibition. He is mixing different techniques to structure patterns and images to create vigorous compositions in both drawings and lithographs. Combined with stencils and treated with ink colors, they are presented in both medium and large-format sizes.
