Jose Dávila

Jose Dávila was born in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1974. For over a decade, Dávila’s practice has explored the transitory nature of physical structures. Drawing on his formal training as an architect, Dávila creates sculptural installations and photographic works that simultaneously emulate, critique, and pay homage to 20th century avant-garde art and architecture. Referencing artists and architects from Luis Barragán and Hurbert Bayer to Donald Judd, Dávila’s work investigates how the modernist movement has been translated, appropriated, and reinvented.
