Archivo Jalisco

“What are we and how do we realize what we are?”
– Octavio Paz
One of Archivo’s great innovations in its way of displaying its collection, is to present popular, vernacular, and handmade objects as an integral part of industrial design. Many of these have been produced by different actors who, being recognized or not, are part of a local vision of what is conceived as a good design.

The Archivo Collection has about fifty objects from Jalisco, many of which are distinctive of Mexican popular design. By thinking them, Archivo has managed to frame them as autonomous pieces but also as objects that coexist with both international and national design; for the Archivo Collection, objects have the same hierarchy despite their geography. It is from their own values ​​as objects and their relationship with their contexts, that these are chosen, integrated and displayed.
