Bio: Cynthia Guterrez’s work addresses the fissures that exist within memories – and how these distortions create histories that exist somewhere between reality and fiction. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States and Mexico. She has a background in visual art from the University of Guadalajara. She was born in 1978 in Guadalajara, Mexico, where she currently resides.

MCA Denver is presenting three artist residencies this fall in collaboration with the Guadalajara art laboratory PAOS. Three artists, Francisco Ugarte, Christian Franco and Cynthia Gutierrez, will be in residence in Denver for two weeks each, presenting public programming, working with local artists, and collaborating with the teens in MCA Denver led leadership programs. This project is made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Street parking is limited. The garage directly across 15th street is $5 after 4pm. Please don't drive if you plan on drinking. 

What if I'm really really thirsty before the event?

We have happy hour up in the cafe from 5–7PM so we recommend you grab a drink upstairs before the talk. And good news, if you don't quite finish your cocktail in time, you can bring it with you downstairs during the talk.

Can I check out the galleries and café after the talk?

Unfortunately, the galleries and MCA Café & Bar will close at 7pm when the talk begins. Feel free to come early to see everything, and get a beverage before the talk starts.
