Mexico '68

RUTA DE LA AMISTAD | AUGUST 3, 2013

Last saturday August 3rd, LIGA and Patronato Ruta de la Amistad A.C., organized a walking visit through the first phase of the relocation project of the sculptures designed for Mexico ’68, guided by Luis Javier de la Torre, founder of the project. We visited 12 of the 22 sculptures located in between the ‘Periférico’ and ‘Avenida Insurgentes’. Throughout the event we spoke about the begining of the project conceived by Mathias Goeritz in collaboration with Architect Pedro Ramírez Vázquez as well as the ongoing rehabilitation project which includes the restoration of the public space and the landscape of ‘el Pedregal de San Angel’.
