Archivo Jalisco

Through the repetition of objects in our context, perhaps the viewer can recognize aspects with which he can identify; features to be discovered through various approaches to intelligence printed on the object.

Some of the works in the Archivo Collection can only be identified by a specific niche: the design connoisseur. Their beauty, ingenuity and simplicity often precede their functionality and the intrinsic potential they carry is not easily readable by a general audience, therefore, their value can only be understood when framed in certain cultural contexts –such as galleries, museums or cultural institutions–. Many of these objects carry implicit narratives that are identified by being familiar with renowned episodes and characters in the history of design; they can be fully appreciated when supported by contexts that give them specific cultural values.
