H O M O C C U L T 2 . 0 – M E X I C O C I T Y
HOMOCCULT 2.0 MEXICO CITY is a multi-venue, group exhibition taking place over the course of two weeks at multiple locations in Mexico City, produced in collaboration with s+s project (CHI) and Perras de Museo (CDMX).
In this it’s second iteration, HOMOCCULT 2.0 MEXICO CITY is again anchored by a group of queer experimental films curated by NYC artist Daniel McKernan, but this time organized in conjunction with a series of pop-up visual, video and performance art exhibitions. Over two dozen U.S. and Mexican contemporary artists have provided work to manifest a distinct platform for a collaborative, multicultural understanding of queer identity, the occult and cultural production. It is in this spirit that we offer “HOMOCCULT 2.0 – MEXICO CITY” as a demonstration of an inclusive queer experience that focuses upon artistic outliers in the US and Mexico whose stories demand the same creative agency as their mainstream counterparts. Transcending gender, race, sexuality and nationality though the framework of occultism as an aesthetic and conceptual antidote to modernity’s many anxieties and prejudices, this multi-part exhibition exemplifies artists of diverse backgrounds from the U.S. and Mexico to unite in a new queer potential.
