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.
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.
