MASA has distinguished itself by conceiving dynamic exhibitions that expand upon the boundaries between art and design. Always working in different locations and cities allowing for new expressions in each iteration.

With digital, physical, and conceptual presence, MASA challenges convention and presents ideas on a global stage. With an effort to open up conversation and dialogue around material culture, MASA curates exhibitions offering work with integrity, direction and value. MASA was founded in Mexico City by a collective of creatives — Age Salajõe, Héctor Esrawe and Brian Thoreen, along with Isaac Bissu and Roberto Diaz — whose backgrounds in art, design and architecture are reflected in MASA’s presentation of design at its boundaries.
