Said has made some new walls in London and Hoxton Gallery Exhibition with friends, Mazatl, Fusca and Ácaro. It’s part of the “Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom” and the “Year of the United Kingdom in Mexico” in 2015 to promote better understanding between our societies.
These walls in Camden and Bricklane are to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the abduction and subsequent dissappearance of 43 students from the Ayotzinapa’s Teacher College in the Mexican state of Guerrero.
This is a series of calligrams of concrete poetry, featuring Rosario Ibarra’s words:
“You will rise from any place, anywhere, to greet and hug me, and recover in that embrace, all the suns that they have stolen from me”
“They took them alive! we want them alive!
Rosario Ibarra is a social fighter for political disappearances in Mexico since the seventies.
The exhibition Graphictti / Inscribed Landscape is taking place in London in a wonderful new space, Hoxton Gallery (59 Old Street EC1V9). The exhibit displays works by several Mexican artists, showing part of the Mexican street art scene and also part of our culture and political situation in Mexico.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
