Mark Whalen explores the weight of social anxieties with humor through sculpture, painting and video. The work of Mark Hagen It has a geometric order and handles the possibility of expansion, subtraction, improvement and rearrangement. Javier Peláez He has developed a practice of more than 15 years that has taken him to the limits of representation and the possibilities of the image today. Fernanda Brunet He has created a pictorial language influenced by comics, nature and human sexuality. Ale de la Puente It poetizes the observation of space, carries out expeditions in search of symbolic natural phenomena and questions how we mean and how we relate to these events and symbols.

Iván Trueta Segovia reflects on the normalization of violence, tragedy and misfortune in the contemporary context, using irony and absurdity as critical devices. iraq morals It addresses the sensitive, the material, the political, the economic, the real and the fiction of objects and representations. daniela franco uses collaboration as the main platform and conceptual art as narrative to spin stories from the observation of everyday life. For Cecilia Barreto Aguilar What remains of beauty in late capitalism has become the scene of dispute between a State in reformulation, the forms of neocolonialism and the emergence of organized crime. Alejandro Garcia Contreras explores themes inspired by contemporary popular culture, folklore, myth, the occult and religion. Alfredo Gallegos introduces materials foreign to everyday life: elements that have been transmuted, where each material is considered a source of information.
