Colectivo Plan Acalli

Plan Acalli is a collective of visual artists, Carlos Huitzil and Ehecatl Morales, conceived in the context of the Faculty of Arts and Design of the UNAM and the sacred space of the ancient lake of Xochimilco. Since 2013, they have been working on a proposal for research, experimentation and artistic production that takes back the environment and lacustrine culture of the city as a living and central element of their work. They develop and implement strategies and artistic devices for collective participation that promotes the activation of networks of interdisciplinary collaboration, conservation and revaluation of the water spaces that exist in the city, as well as the generation of new senses of coexistence between the city and its intrinsic memory. They use the “canoe” as a symbolic and conceptual element of the culture of water and lake drift as a platform for recognition and interaction with the “chinampa” landscape, (systemic routes of the canal system that allow a creative experience and a deeper community bonding). This artist collective work is nurtured and complemented by a variety of aesthetic languages ​​that range from non-objectual procedural actions, installations, research and archive work, video, as well as plastic works with traditional techniques. They have participated in various colloquia and meetings about art and environment of the Faculty of Art and Design in 2012 and 2013, in the collective exhibition Origo at the Advanced Engineering Center of the UNAM 2014. They also collaborated for the Sample Translate in Action Drawing in Processes in Ex Teresa Arte Actual in 2015 and organized the Collective Exhibition Plan Acalli Procesos at the Casa Talavera Cultural Center in 2016. More recently they have participated in the Un Mundo en Común, meeting in ExTeresa Arte Actual in 2016 and have been invited to the emerging Decolonizing Nature exhibition organized by the 516 Arts Gallery in Albuquerque New Mexico in 2017.
