(Y-11) productive day

Today was a very cool one.

Although I could not read that much, I went and see some panels in the book fair and finally got to see the new exhibition in the museum of art.

For this last one, the exhibition has to do with the natural process of color dyeing, it is call Cromática by artist Tania Candiani, if you are in Ciudad Juarez, go check it.

Here are some pictures

I’ll try to squeeze some reading before I succumb to sleep.

(Y-11) Some extra art activities

For the past week, it has slipped my mind to talk about a new exhibition in the city’s museum of art.

This time is a photographic retrospective spanning five decades and the lenses of many photographers working on capturing the always intricated reality of our border city.

I am not sure until when the exhibition is going to be on display, but if you are in Ciudad Juarez or El Paso, you should go and check it out.

It would not disappoint.

Back to it then.

(Y-10) A day for wandering

Yesterday was a very rich day for running around.

I went to one of my favorite spots in my fair city and catch up with some new art exhibition.

This time was The Trans Border Biennial ELP-JRZ 2018.

And, being a border town, this has a great impact on our way to visualize our relationship with not only the physical space that is the border but also all the psychological and emotional aspects that construct it.

There are some amazing pieces that capture this enigmatic place.

Be sure to check it out if you are around Ciudad Juarez.

It also gave me some free time to catch up with some reading.

I’m glad to say that the second volume of Lady Mechanika is under my belt and my current book, The Lone Drow, is past the half way mark, on page 195 of 370, to be precise.

Below you can see some of the cover of Lady Mechanika by the extraordinary artist Joe Benitez

Today I plan to do more of the same, what better way to commemorate 37 years on this beautiful planet than to be with my beautiful family and read some more.

Well, back to it.

(Y-10) Catching up with some art.

I finally had the time to catch-up with some new art exhibitions.

All of this on one of my favorite spots in my fair city, Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juárez.

I only had time to peruse two on the three new exhibitions, but I’ll make the time to peruse the one left.

In the main room there is a collection of mural studies by famous mexican muralist, Aurora Reyes,considered a pioneer female artist.

The second exhibition about sensuality and sexuality in Mexico, a really interesting and sad reality of marginalization of the LGBT community and any sexual liberation front in our country, which in retrospect has not change that much in the course of the last 50 years.

If you get the chance to visit the museum, please do.

Not only for the great art but also it is a great space to wander around and relax.

Back to it.
