Please join us for the exhibition opening on Thursday 7th of December 2017 from 7 PM.

What is the role of geography in our perception of the world? We even react differently to such a question in different places. How differently does this question echo in Oslo, Mexico-City, Tehran, Sao Paulo, Seoul? Every place produces its own set of premises and every artwork carries the spirit of its production place.

In Xochitl in Cuicatl  (in-flower-and-in-chant) is a curated program of artists’ moving image works from Mexico-City. ATOPIA has invited the independent curator Miguel Jara to collaborate on this final edition of the Cities of the World project.

The program brings together works by ten contemporary artists who live and work in Mexico-City. These works examine and reflect the dilemmas and tensions of a rapidly changing mega city.

Cities of the World is an international project of ATOPIA exploring the relationship of place and perception. Through a series of curated video programs gathered from around the world, this project attempts to create a better understanding of the geopolitics of artistic productions and particularities of art works found in different places.

Artists: Andrés García Franco, Annalisa D. Quagliata, Antonio Arango, Daniela Libertad, Eduardo Makoszay, Fernan Martinez & Eduardo Makoszay, Geni Thalia, Tania Ximena and Txema Novelo.
