Hestia at Zona Maco, Mexico
We are happy to participate at Paris Photo, November 9 -13 at the Grand Palais Éphémère with works by Marge Monko and Louis-Cyprien Rials. If you’re in town come see us at the main sector booth E-22.
We are pleased to announce our participation at Zona Maco art fair taking place from February 8th-12th at Centro Citibamex in Mexico City. We will be presenting the “Case Study Series” (2018-2022) by Serbian artist Biljana Djurdjevic and “Battle Cry Series” by Spanish artist Daniel Garcia Andujar.
Presented as part of Djurdjevic’s solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, the “Case Study Series” reflects on authoritarian regimes, surveillance, the exercise of power and the conditions of labor. Drawing from George Orwell’s “1984” novel that adorns Djurdjevic’s work, there is a strong aesthetic and narrative in her oeuvre.
Daniel Garcia Andujar’s “Battle Cry Series” examines how in a world saturated with images, media hits all kinds of advertising intrusions and how marketing techniques of political propaganda have evolved and have been personalized through sophisticated algorithms that allow our governments and institutions, political power, power in general, to continue filtering their propaganda as a global channel of imposition for interpellation, hegemony and homogeneity.
We hope to see you at Zona Maco 2023, Stand EJ40, ZonaMaco Ejes sector!
The EJES section is committed to hybrid and transdisciplinary projects, young galleries, new proposals and in-transition spaces involved with artistic practices that reflect current society’s “here and now”. It will be focused on solo and up to three artists’ proposals.
Curator: Direlia Lazo (Havana, 1984) is an independent curator based in Miami. Founder and Director of independent art initiatives such as Havana Art Weekend in Havana and more recently Together in Miami.
