Jose Dávila is a Mexican contemporary artist. His practice explores spatial occupation and the transitory nature of physical structures. Drawing on his formal training as an architect, he creates sculptural installations that both emulate and critique the 20th century avant-garde art and architecture.
His work is part of international public and private collections such as Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, FR; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, SP; Inhotim Collection, Brumadinho, BR; Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburgo, DE. Dávila has been featured in international publications such as Cream 3, ed. Phaidon; 100 Latin American Artists, ed. Exit and the monograph The Feather and The Elephant, ed. Hatje Cantz.
