LIGA is an independent exhibition platform for the promotion and support of contemporary Latin American architecture. They do this through workshops and conferences, film screenings, publications, as well as through their frequent and well-attended exhibitions. Most of their activities have taken place in Mexico City.
A non-profit initiative, LIGA was organized by Abel Perles, Carlos Bedoya, Victor Jaime and Wonne Ickx of the architecture firm PRODUCTORA. They worked in collaboration with curator and art critic, Ruth Estevez.
The aim is to exchange ideas and support research on contemporary architecture, as well as to support architectural and artistic development and understanding. Exhibitions of the work of Mexican and Latin American architects and artists are generally installed every three months.
LIGA has received international recognition. Invited to participate in “The Institute Effect” at the 3rd Lisbon Architecture Triennial, they received a grant from the Graham Foundation in April 2014. They have also exhibited at the Architecture Foundation in London.
