La Clinica is a center for design research and contemporary art at the intersection of health and social inquiries.

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 exhibitions, artist talks, residencies, performances, and others. The process of diagnosing informs how we understand research and making. We find ourselves transitioning from the inert objectivity of (western) medical diagnosing (the linear assessment of a maladie), and going into the deeply subjective experience of creating modes of showing art; blurring the lines between institution/clinic, artist/doctor, and patient/audience. 

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.
