CDMX Group Show: Visiones Femeninas, an all female show @ de Kooning Studio, NYC
Curated by Varenka Ruiz, the CDMX Group Show debuted at the Juxtapoz Club House during Art Week Miami – as a heterogeneous, powerful and intimate project without precedent. The event was conceived as a platform to exhibit and sell works of 15 Mexican artists from and or residing in, Mexico City. The show sought to link artists with institutions, collectors and art enthusiasts.
"More than an art show, the exhibition serves as a dissemination laboratory for creators and their specific proposals, generating prolific strategies to enter the international and global market", the curator mentions. "In this way, the exhibition serves as a strategic catalyst to encourage and position local artistic production, fostering an approach of regional and foreign audiences to Mexican art." After Miami, the show traveled to Austin and is now is about to open in New York City.
This Thursday April 25th, the show transforms into an all Mexican female "CDMX Group Show: Visiones Femeninas" exhibition. This show aims to share with the multicultural NYC audience, the Mexican female talent that is out there in full force and foster the production of more opportunities for female artists in an attempt to level the playing field and the disparity between genders that still remains.
For the NYC edition, the artists will exhibit paintings, drawings, textile installation, and one mural made specifically for the occasion. Also for this show, the artists collaborated with SARA, a Mexican Risograph printing laboratory, to create original and really affordable prints on FSC, RA, SFI, and ECF certified paper. Part of the prints profit will be donated to a cultural Institution in NYC to create a free "Art and Digital Art" workshop given by the artists.
The members of the CDMX Group Show: Visiones Femeninas will include Christian Castañeda, Fusca, Helena Garza, Hilda Palafox, Maria Conejo, Minerva Ayón, Monica Loya, Paola Delfín, Varenka Ruiz and, Yanin Ruibal.
The exhibition will be on view from 4/25/2019 – 4/28/2019, @ The De Kooning Studio, 827 Broadway, New York, NY. 10003
