Exhibition curators Fiona McKay and Xenia Capacete Caballero from White Line Projects guided visitors through the selected themes and key works in Mundo Latinx.
Mundo Latinx (Latinx World) brought together the work of visual artists who raise questions around representation and identity to reveal some of the struggles for visibility, empowerment and justice within current social, political, economic and cultural structures. The selection of works challenged dominant stereotypes constructed through how people look, dress and behave, by showing the processes of affirming, transforming and reinventing heritage and identity. It put emphasis on works that deal with underrepresented communities, including LGBTQI+, black and indigenous communities, human rights activism and workers’ rights.
The exhibition included work from José Ballivián, Hugo Canuto, José Castrellón, Sabrina Collares, Lucía Cuba, Carla Fernández, Jahel Guerra Roa, Guerxs, Natalia Iguíñiz, Diego Moreno, Lena Mucha, Brechó Replay, Silvia Röthlisberger/Latin Elephant, Dorian Ulises López Macías, John M. Valádez, Veteranas & Rucas and Adam Wiseman.
