Miradas a la Ciudad – A Look Back at the City opens at the Museum of the City of Mexico

The project Miradas a la Ciudad – A Look Back at the City, on which I worked last November, will be exhibited at the redeveloped and just re-opened Museum of the City of Mexico. Active for over 50 years, the museum has opened its first permanent exhibition space devoted to the analysis and study of Mexico City’s urban phenomenon. With the aim of giving voice to those who make Mexico City such a unique place – from a taco seller in Colonia Narvarte to a taxi driver in Observatorio, Garibaldi Plaza’s mariachis and the Santa Muerte worshippers in Tepito – I was asked to create a series of portraits that would be shown alongside words by Georgina Hidalgo Vivas, who curated the room with Mediapro Exhibitions.
