Adapta Project @ Terra Sur

July 3, 2008

“TJ Green” by Los Ilegales

The new website for A Room of One’s Own is up.  Check it out and RSVP for the 8 PM shuttle leaving from the Old Town Transit Center and arriving at the front door of Terra Sur by emailing adaptaproject@gmail.com.

Want to drive yourself?  Here are the directions:

From the border, take the Tijuana-Ensenada Toll Road (look for detour signs), and stay on the highway for approximately 15 minutes heading west then south. The toll will cost you $26 pesos or $2.50 (USD). Pass by the signs for where the Donald Trump project will be located (at KM 16), keep driving straight ahead and at the next right curve (KM 17), you´ll see a Terra Sur Billboard. Drive a quarter mile more and you will see a small entrance to your right, take that dirt road exit and take a right onto the dirt road and you’ll see Terra Sur.

Click here for a map.  And below is a map of the detour. It’s easy, I promise.

    Let’s Play House

    May 24, 2008

    A Room Of One’s Own opens July 19, 2008

    Taking inspiration from Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay which challenges that female writers, given equal opportunity, would be able to create work as important as those that have been historically admired and authored by men, Adapta Project has taken on the challenge of intimate spaces with A Room of One’s Own. The essay advocates for artists to be given proper resources—such as space and time—to create meaningful works of art. This group show is an opportunity for talented artists to create site-specific installations or show their work which grapples with the subjects of identity and ownership.

    Terra Sur, an oceanfront development in Baja California designed by architects Rob Quigley, Guillermo Martinez de Castro, Andrew Spurlock, John Sheehan, Ricardo Rabines and Fernando Gonzales, has given Adapta Project the opportunity to show cutting-edge contemporary art at one of its oceanfront properties. Artists from San Diego, Tijuana and beyond will take over space within this domestic setting to author their own galley: expect new-media installations, paintings, photography, performance, video art and audio art that express the individuality and creative spirit of each artist.
