MASA walks the blurry line between art and design. Collectible design. Experimental design. To show, to curate, to write, to build, to question, to provoke, to educate, to learn: these are the desires. Desire might even be at the center of this adventure. MASA is a nomadic project offering space for discourse about design. MASA is cornmeal, a pliable material that quells hunger and sustains culture.
With digital, physical, and conceptual presence, MASA challenges convention and presents ideas on a global stage. With an effort to open up conversation and dialogue around material culture, MASA curates exhibitions offering work with integrity, direction and value. MASA was founded in Mexico City by a collective of creatives — Héctor Esrawe, Age Salajõe, Brian Thoreen and Cristobal Riestra, along with Isaac Bissu and Roberto Diaz — whose backgrounds in art, design and architecture are reflected in MASA’s presentation of design at its boundaries.
