Capomo, emerging art and cultural gallery, established in Mexico City is a project that serves as an art incubator, founded by Atenas Beltrán Uriz in partnership with Sway Gaytan. We generate culture through the creation, promotion, and production of artistic events in an interdisciplinary and itinerate way, with the intention of communicating cultural values, provoking dialogue and promoting critical thinking.
Capomo possesses a multifaceted and eclectic character since it mutates according to the realities of the spectator, the creator, and space. We seek different scenarios, where these mutations can occur, recognizing ourselves in otherness, fostering individuality, curatorial and museographic experimentation. Capomo is an initiative that redefines itself by breaking the standards of a gallery or a fixed cultural space. We do not stagnate or work in a conventional manner, our proposal is related to change, to the unstable and to experimentation, so our projects are characterized by their diversity.
Capomo is a longing that is shared with those who still believe in art as a social healer and as an essence that elevates the soul.
