Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo

Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo is the cofounder of Pedro&Juana, a studio based in Mexico City. Pedro&Juana works on a variety of projects across creative professions. Pedro&Juana explore the capacity of objects to change their environment through typological transgressions and the indiscriminate use of material, texture, color, placement, or form. Their projects assemble new and unexpected relationships with those that encounter them. Some of them are: Sesiones Puerquito or Little Pig (2012-2014), cooking a suckling as a pretext for better conversation; Archivo Pavilion (2012), an intervention in the gardens of Archivo Diseño y Arquitectura, DF, Mexico; Hellmut (2013), a Table turn Bench turn Table for Gallery 1 of Museo Jumex, DF, Mexico; Casa Reyes (2011-2012), an annex to an ex-colonial house, Merida, Yucatan; Turin 42 (2013-2022), a small apartment complex within and on top of a 1918 house, DF, Mexico; Pavilion of Hotel Palenque is not in Yucatán (2014), a de-differentiated structure at the Hessel Museum of Art, New York, U.S.; With Love from The Tropics (2016-2017), MCA Chicago, U.S.; Le Stalle (2017-) a restoration of two animal stables and a pavilion, Lago Maggiore, Italy; and Hórama Rama (2019), a cyclorama for Queens on top of the courtyard of MoMA PS1, New York, U.S. Galindo has taught at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, The Cooper Union, and GSAPP in NYC and has lectured in multiple cities around the world.
