Cerith Wyn Evans

MUSEO TAMAYO, Mexico City

Cerith Wyn Evans, E=C=L=I=P=S=E, 2015.
by

Chris Sharp

I’m not usually a fan of art about art, for the simple reason that it tends to perpetuate the potential solipsism of a perilously self-involved discipline, but something about Cerith Wyn Evans and his consistent ability to transmute art-historical references into quasi-mystical arcana has always struck me as agreeably mystifying.... continue reading

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Mexico City

View of Adela Goldbard’s “Aplausos, confeti, serpentinas y flores,” Galería Enrique Guerrero, Mexico City, 2017.
by

Travis Diehl

On September 19, 2017, Mexico City was hit by one of the most destructive earthquakes in the country’s history. Gallery Weekend Mexico City was originally scheduled to open September 21, by which time everyone who could was out in the streets clearing rubble and handing out food and water.

Andrea Geyer’s “Truly Spun Never”

PARQUE GALERíA, Mexico City

Andrea Geyer, Truly Spun Never, 2016.
by

Claudia Arozqueta

Like dance draws lines in space and time, Andrea Geyer’s first solo exhibition in Mexico City leaves a pleasant yet evanescent memory. Through crisscrossing imaginary and factual lines, the artist connects past histories and current politics with a sharp focus on the role of women in the arts. Encompassing a... continue reading
