R.R. and the Expansion of the Tropics is a project developed by Mexico City-based artist Mario García Torres (b.1975, Monclova, Mexico) specifically for Pérez Art Museum Miami in which a number of seemingly unrelated subjects such as Robert Rauschenberg, climate change and Florida are threaded together to form a series of conceptual and political questions. García Torres has long been interested in exploring little-known issues within recent art history and in addressing parallel subjects that find new meanings and contexts through his careful juxtapositions. This project creates a number of gestures, including photographic documentation, film, music and other types of information displays.
