Minerva Cuevas: Disidencia
September 30, 2020 – April 2, 2021
Since the late 1990s, Minerva Cuevas has been making work that actively critiques or attempts to subvert capitalist structures. The centerpiece of this exhibition is a 25-minute video, Disidencia (2007 – ongoing), comprising the artist’s ongoing archive of over 30 hours of footage filmed in the streets and public squares of Mexico City, documenting signs of dissent and evidence of grassroots resistance—anti-police graffiti, banners demanding improved labor conditions, a group of farmers marching in protest and other popular demonstrations. The exhibition convenes seven of the artist’s video works that confront the growing dissatisfaction and resistance to economic and political power structures, the vestiges of colonialism, privatization of wealth, and destruction of the natural world. Minerva Cuevas lives and works in Mexico City.
Disidencia was curated by Gabriel Bogossian and Solange Farkars and first presented at Galpāo VB (Associaçāo Cultural Videobrasil). The touring exhibition was curated by Alaina Claire Feldman and presented at the Mishkin Gallery of Baruch College. Disidencia is organized and presented at the Pitzer College Art Galleries by Ciara Ennis. Additional support has been provided by kurimanzutto, Mexico City/New York.
