Minerva Cuevas (Kurimanzutto Gallery): Recipient of the 1800 Tequila Award Collection of 36 thousand dollars for the work “What Happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?”, Made from carrots, as the main food in Mexican culture, working about the orange pigment and the current impact of the concept of feeding of all human beings.
Matías Goeritz Galería (Caja Negra): Winner of the 1800 Tequila Collection for 22 thousand dollars, for 4 drawings on vegetal paper, based on the absence of a window as a visual element but also spatial, placing the narrative and sculptural details.
Julio Leparc (RGR Gallery): He received the 1800 Tequila 1800 Collection Award for the work “Mobile Bleu Translucide”, a clear example of the displacement of object elements that make up a kinetic sculpture, which generates displacements, sounds, color and they turn into a sculpture in movement.
