Tania Ximena: Río del Río Concierto #3

Ex Teresa Arte Actual


March 14


Ex Teresa Arte Actual

Time: 5-9 pm

Admission: free

Río del Río Concierto #3 is a musical intervention in Tania Ximena’s exhibition Río de Niebla, Río de Adobe, Río de Sangre.

This exhibition stems from Tania Ximena’s research on the decrease in volume of Jamapa, Mexico’s last living glacier, located on top of the Citlaltépetl volcano, better known as Pico de Orizaba, in Veracruz.

Since 2015, the artist has recorded this thick layer of ice with the intention of expressing in a poetic way the voice of the natural elements that make up this ice giant that resists disappearing but that no longer feeds the river of the same name as the glacier.

As a result, Tania Ximena considers herself a conscious observer of her time, similar to a seismograph. As part of her field research, she also assumes the role of an ethnologist who ventures into the field to explore a geographical region. In this way, she shares her life with the local community, which includes individuals of Afro-mestizo descent.
