{\} Ô {\} ∆ ‡ | Ô {\} T a n g e n t i a l U n s p a c e A r t L a b in collaboration with s+s project brings together a selection of recent works on paper, mixed-media,collaged paintings and sculptures by Sofia Moreno. Collectively, the works in “BioPharmacoMythology- A Dancer’s Reward” address subjects that have long permeated Moreno’s practice gender, environmental terrorism, personal mythologies, material histories,and the ancient roots of perversion. Moreno’s work confronts the violence of medical waste and industrial capitalism,as well as its fundamental relationship to her trans body—a violent and erotic dance whose legacy has shaped romantic and exploitative inequities that persist today.

Established in 2009, s+s project is a nomadic cultural organization integral in contemporary culture and cultural exchange in Chicago. It has worked with numerous artists and organizations to promote creativity and provoke transformation. In 2016 s+s project embarked on a new direction to facilitate and foster dialogue between Mexican and international artists across generations.

In establishing the space for cross cultural communication, this organization fostered the opening of gates where oracles, architects, healers, and revelers, provocateurs, creatures, and hybrids might operate freely. Here, the call for creative generation exists inseparable from the illumination of pervasive social ills. Currently it serves as an incubator where creatives can innovate ways of approaching and solving the dilemmas facing their audience.

In addition to its committed exhibition program and cultural exchange , s+s project is currently working on a book, digital media archives, various publications, and an international residency program in Mexico City.
