Culture: Adapta Project Presents 'A Room Of One's Own'

I realize this is a straight up press release, but this is a pretty cool event coming up, put on by the Adapta Project (including my homegirl Kinsee from CityBeat). Plus there's a free shuttle from San Diego on 7/19.

'A Room of One's Own: Intimate Art in Contemporary Space'

An upcoming one-week exhibit (July 19 – 27) will open on Saturday, July 19, 5 - 11 p.m. at Terra Sur, a new residential resort community, south of San Diego near Rosarito Beach, Mexico and will offer a masterful blend of contemporary art and modern architecture created by some of the bi-national region's most talented artists and architects.

Organized by the curatorial upstarts at Adapta Project, this first-of-its-kind art show transforms the various rooms and spaces of an ultramodern multi-story beachfront home into various multi-sensory experiences featuring new installations, paintings, performance pieces, audio and video displays by internationally renowned artists including Tania Candiani, Aldo Guerra, Mely Barragan, Daniel Ruanova and others.

The site-specific artworks represent the Baja region and the subjects of ownership and identify, in the model home of a community designed by some of Southern California and Baja Mexico's most elite architects including Rob Wellington Quigley, who most recently created the new award-winning downtown San Diego Children's Museum, and Guillermo Martinez de Castro ("Mannix"), who crafted the colorful Festival Hotel and Entertainment Center in Rosarito Beach.

At 'A Room of One's Own: Intimate Art in Contemporary Space,' patrons will get a glimpse of the talents of some of the emerging and established artists based in Tijuana, Estonia, and Mexico City, as well as gain a better understand of why Baja California has a growing reputation around the world as a cultural and artistic capital.

The unveiling celebration of "A Room of One's Own" on July 19 will include artists in attendance and music. Reservations are requested at

A free shuttle service will be available from San Diego; shuttle reservations are required by emailing and space is limited (check for more details).
