    Adapta Project presents ‘A Room of One’s Own: Intimate Art in Contemporary Spaces’ at Beachfront Development in Baja California

    Terra Sur Coastal Resort Hosts Free Bi-National Art Exhibit July 19 – 27

    BAJA CALIFORNIA, Mexico – May 27, 2008 – “A Room of One’s Own: Intimate Art in Contemporary Spaces,” a new exhibit by Adapta Project, will open on Saturday,

    July 19, 5 – 11 p.m. at Terra Sur, a new residential resort community, south of San Diego near Rosarito Beach.

    In Adapta Project’s curatorial creation, regionally renowned artists will create miniature self-expressive galleries within their own allotted spaces. The exhibit is expected to feature new installations, paintings, performance pieces and video and audio art by Tijuana, San Diego, Estonia and Mexico City artists.

    Each of the original artworks are designed for display in a specific room or space at the first luxury custom home at Terra Sur Coastal Resort, and will represent work inspired by the Baja region and themes of ownership and identity.

    “This is an incredible opportunity to present some of the most interesting new art being made on the West Coast,” said Guillermo Martinez de Castro (“Mannix”), the residential resort’s developer and lead architect, who is underwriting the exhibit. “It will be an exciting marriage of architecture – created by Mexico and San Diego-based architects – and art inspired by that architecture.”

    The unveiling celebration of “A Room of One’s Own” on July 19 will include artists in attendance and music. Reservations are requested at adaptaproject@gmail.com.

    A free shuttle service will be available from San Diego; shuttle reservations are required by emailing adaptaproject@gmail.com and space is limited (check www.adaptaproject.com for more details).

    The exhibit will remain open through July 27.

    Adapta Project:

    “A Room of One’s Own” is one of only a handful of endeavors that the San Diego-based curatorial collective known as Adapta Project has undertaken this year. Earlier this spring, the arts group created a themed exhibit for the new Rob Wellington Quigley-designed Children’s Museum in downtown San Diego. Quigley is one of the acclaimed architects from both sides of the U.S./Mexican border who are designing the seven single-family detached homes in the first phase of Terra Sur.

    Adapta Project was founded in 2007 to offer an alternative perspective for showing and viewing artistic expression outside of conventional venues.

    This collaborative initiative of curating and creating art in response to differing spaces is intended to positively influence and impact the experience of everyone involved, and expand existing opportunities currently available for presenting art. For more information, call (619) 436-9034 or log onto www.adaptaproject.com

    Terra Sur:

    Currently under construction along the scenic coast just eight miles south of the U.S. border between Tijuana and Rosarito, Terra Sur Coastal Resort will include 16 individually and uniquely-designed beachfront single-family homes, two condo mid-rise towers with 103 units over parking all amid beautiful rugged coastline, lush native

    landscaping with gardens, terraces and coastal walkways, retail, restaurant and a high-end spa.

    Terra Sur is being designed by some of the border region’s most acclaimed architects. These include notable San Diego-based firms Rob Wellington Quigley, Spurlock-Poirier Landscape Architects, Safdie Rabines Architects, Ocean Pacific Design and Studio E Architects as well as Baja-based REDI Design.

    Terra Sur is being developed by Paladin Redi Investors Baja, LLC, a joint venture between U.S.-based companies, Paladin Latin America Investors, LLC, and REDI International, LLC. REDI, headquartered in the Baja Coast Region, is one of the area’s leading bi-national real estate development companies founded by enterprising architect and developer Guillermo Martinez (Mannix) de Castro with more than $500 million in projects planned or underway along the Baja California peninsula.
