SHARE September 25th, 2019

Anuar Maauad (b. 1984) lives and works in Mexico City. Maauad’s recent work examines the relationship between the political identity and social memory, and the subject of the perceptive experience. He received his BS in Architecture from the Universidad de Las Américas, Puebla, and a BFA from La Esmeralda (Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado), Mexico City. In 2010, he founded Casa Maauad, a non-for-profit residency program based in Mexico City that operated for seven years. His work can be found in significant collections, including the Jumex Foundation in Mexico, as well as the Costantini Collection in Argentina.
