Miradas Alternas

The Polygon Gallery – Dec 11 to Feb 7, 2021. Vancouver (Canada)


The Miradas Alternas exhibition explores alternative approaches to the photographic representation of violence in contemporary Mexico. It presents photographs. Videos and materials printed by Mexican women artists based on the lens. Juliana Alvarado. Alejandra Aragón. Koral Carballo. Mariceu Erthal and Sonia Madrigal. Combining artistic, documentary and journalistic approaches. Their work responds to the ongoing femicide crisis which has grown exponentially in recent years. Enforced disappearances and multiple forms of criminal violence. In an ongoing armed conflict of unimaginable horror and yet so rich in images. Rejecting the forensic gaze common to news photography. In the mass media, they rely on language. Use poetic devices and use performative strategies to produce photographic images differently. Focusing on the effects of loss. Sadness. Of rage and fear. Their work evokes the absence of missing and murdered women. And tells stories that claim spaces of presence. Visibility and justice. Curated by: ANDREA SANCHEZ IBARROLA
