Joe is a training architect and writer from Manchester. His writing about his own city has been published by the tourist board in several languages and his zine 'Belle Vue' dishes out small printed nuggets of urban topophilia to proud Mancunians everywhere.
Through poetical analogies of nature and anthropogenic events, Rodrigo Ímaz‘s practice emphasizes the inadequacies of instrumental reason, while critiquing contemporary society by exploring the violent nature of the relationship between life and cycles of nature. In his work, organic forms arise, threatening human pride and its arrogance and the course of progress, while poetry ennobles language and human creations.”
Ímaz (b. 1982, Mexico City) was in residency at Art Omi (2013). He has been awarded the scholarship for Master Studies from the National Fund for Arts (FONCA) and the Youth Award (INJUVE) – Colección Jumex.

Solo shows in Mexico include “Haciendo Agua” (2012),”Proyecto Invisible” (2012),”Parvada” (2011), “Cefalópodo” (2010), “Ya no llueve” (2009), “Sombra de la sombra” (2007), “Ecos de Juana” (2007), “Especulaciones” (2006), “La incertidumbre también es un motivo” (2006).
