Statement

As a Latin American artist, one of my primary focuses are the concepts of baroque in our Latin American region, mostly in Mexico, how this is reflected and affected by elements and patterns since colonial times, and how we can se these baroque manifestations in the XXI century in Mexico and abroad.

The research that sustains my artistic and theoretical production is through local, diasporic, and marginal perceptions, knowledge, realities, history, social movements, resistances, and subversions as expressions and didactics towards socio-cultural-political expressions. My research topics explore and connect the core cultural, social, theoretical, political, religious, historical and contemporary manifestations, juxtaposed with the manifestations of baroque as colonial legacy and ballast in contemporary Mexico, and by extension in Latin America. My areas of research include Latin American Art, Latin American History, Art History, Anthropology, Contemporary Art, and systems of Indigenous knowledge production.
