Felipe Mujica (born in Santiago, Chile in 1974) studied art at the Universidad Católica de Chile. Just out of art school, in 1997, he co-founds with Diego Fernández and José Luis Villablanca the artist run space Galería Chilena (GCH), which operated between 1999 and 2005, first a nomadic and commercial art gallery and later as a collaborative art project, a curatorial “experiment”. In early 2000 Mujica moved to New York City where he currently lives and works.
Parallel and interrelated to his own work Mujica has organized and produced many collaborative projects, which include mostly exhibitions and books. In collaboration with Johanna Unzueta since 2009 he designs and edits artist books, such as: Local People, Trapped by Mutal Affection, Peace, Love and Rockets, Arquitectura y amistad and most recently Jugador como pelota, pelota como cancha, an artist book‐homage to Manuel Casanueva, architect and teacher creator of the Torneos at the “Escuela de Valparaiso”.
