Constellations of the Audio-Machine in Mexico
Curated by: Carlos Prieto Acevedo
Constellations of the Audio-Machine in Mexico explores the history of sound in close dialogue with visual arts, literature, painting, cinema, dance, photography and anthropology from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. Throughout four subjects: The Indiofuturism, Cosmopolis of Mexico, The Monstrous and Emanations, the exhibition addresses the practice of different artists interested in building the national modern project guided by the utopian fantasies of the Mexican metropolis and the cosmopolitan dream in Latin America. The exhibition is comprised by paintings, photographs, archives, engravings, documents and projects by more than 30 visual and sound artists that have been fundamental for the history of sound in the country. A version of this exhibition was presented at the Transmediale Festival in Berlin in 2017 and for the first time it is exhibited in Mexico.
