MAKING TULUM AN ART DESTINATION
It all started with Residencia Gorila.
An artist residency and guest house located in the extraordinary, beautiful and magical Boca Paila, Tulum. The primary objective of Residency Gorila is to integrate and host multidisciplinary talents and artists from around the world. We apply these talents towards environmental and social projects in order to help shape and keep Tulum nature and eco conscious. We thought this was so cool, and worked so well we wanted to create a public space to give artists the chance to interact with the public, and vice versa.
This is the first contemporary art and culture space in the whole of Riviera Maya, in turn making it a vital force in the art scene of the Yucatán region.
Our gallery includes a selection of emerging Mexican and International contemporary artists, with pieces created in Tulum, as well as different places all around the world. Each unique piece relates the vision of the artists through their story, transformation, integration and collaboration with this magical community.

Not only are we a sweet artistic space, and the first of its kind in the region, but we also host a number of charitable events that DIRECTLY benefit the local community of Tulum.
We facilitate for public dialogues which engage with critical awareness, social consciousness and community topics that are important for us. We do this through a range of events from musical gatherings to artistic talks. Our weekly workshops give opportunities for personal interactions between everyone artistic and not in the area, creating this lovely community fuelled by art.
