Piero Atchugarry Gallery
Piero Atchugarry gallery presents a contemporary art program and modern art survey.
The gallery opened to the public in September 2013 with a Post-War Italian art exhibition.
By January 2014 the gallery moved to a large stable adapted as an exhibition space in Garzón. In this space the program allowed outdoor and indoor proposal exploration, through the creation of dialogue between architectural features and curatorial practices.
On December 2018, the program expanded to North America with a second location, a 9000 square feet warehouse on 5520 NE 4th Avenue in the Design District neighborhood.
The participation of the gallery in what is a boiling art community that connects Europe, Latin America and both coasts of the United States represents the commitment of the program to support and present the work of local and international artists with an institutional approach.

"The image loses its sacred character once it is outside time and is tarnished by time as it talks about it; it is not located in time but instead tells us about it, praising it in its complexity and multi-directionality."
–Domenico de Chirico, Curator
Looking at Pablo Rasgado’s work feels like entering a world made of fragments, a fragmentation that gives life to meaning. He creates it by constructing systems made in turn by parts of meaning, of a meaning primarily hidden or only potentially present and then emancipated, extracted through interrelated historical and aesthetic references.
The works of Pablo Rasgado appear to be immersed in a whirlwind in which the elements extracted from physical contexts, whose relevance is both political and social, are agitated so they can join together in satellites of meaning and in which these satellites become meteors whose flights reveal the infinite aesthetic references of their make-up.
Pablo Rasgado was born 1984 in Zapopan (Mexico). Lives and works in Mexico City. The artist reconfigures material from everyday life into new abstractions. Much of his past work has been made from painted public walls, some extracted from busy city streets, others from temporary museum exhibitions. Sometimes the walls have political or social content. Sometimes they simply contain an image that the artist wants to capture and present in a new way. Whatever the source, Rasgado seeks to represent a frozen moment. In the case of the Unfolded Architecture paintings, theyrepresent specific moments within a museum’s history and indeed in art history.
He has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner, Los Angeles (2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017); Arratia Beer, Berlin (2012 & 2014); OMR, Mexico City (2013); and Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico
City (2011). He has also had work in group exhibitions at XIII Bienal de Cuenca (2016); CAM Raleigh (2014); The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2013); Ex Magazzini di San Cassian, Art Collateral Events, 55th Venice Biennale (2013); Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel (2013); Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2012); and Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City (2010). His work is owned by public collections including Wattis Foundation, San Francisco; Perez Art Museum, Miami; Jumex Collection, Mexico City; and The Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
