La Clinica is an exhibition and project space at the intersection of local and international practices.

Located at C. Macedonio Alcalá 808, Centro 68000 Oaxaca, Mexico. This corner of Oaxaca was the first-private-medical-clinic in the city. Our curatorial framework and program is shaped around this heritage. We produce residencies, exhibitions, artist talks, performances, and others. The process of diagnosing informs how we understand research and making.
Within our curatorial framework we find ourselves transitioning from the inert objectivity of western medical diagnosing (the linear assessment of a maladie that is meant to return the productive-body back to its state of capital production) and into creating modes of showing for deeply subjective and situated practices.

Our predecessor, the clinic Santo Domingo de Guzmán was founded on the 27 of September 1982 by the doctors Ernesto López Lena, Rodolfo Armado Ramiréz Santaella, Moisés Ortega Viveros, Ángel Lorenzo González Rivera, Isaís Valdez Zaragoza, Ramón Jiménez Caballero, Francisco de Jesús Ramirez Santaella, José Juan Manuel Hermoso Limón, Vilma Virginia Barahona de Ayala, Jorge Humberto Ayala Villarreal, and Herminio Marcos Segura Jiménez.
