With Mexico, From Love brings together a number of artists from Latin America, including those who have immigrated to Canada or other parts of the world, but whose work remains influenced by the culture and issues of the present day Mexico. The show aims to open up a potential for cross cultural exchange between artists, as well as communities, and help to understand contemporary issues across North America. Mexico’s rich history, folklore, traditions, and craft inform the selected works, and are a departure point for the structure of this exhibition.

Over the course of the exhibition a number of elements will grow incorporating a physical exchange of objects between Mexico and Canada, and utilizing a Taco Stand as a location for discourse and activities.

Artists: Yanieb Fabre, Alejandro Garcia Contreras, Erick García Gómez, Juanita Lee-Garcia, Calixto Ramirez, Melina Sevilla, Guillermo Trejo

Curated by Iga Janik and Scott McGovern, presented in partnership with Ed Video Media Arts Centre   

FRIDAY NIGHT ART LIVE OPENING: November 25, 7:00PM

With TACOS at the TACO STAND PROJECT presented in conjunction with the exhibition
