UCL Americas Alumna Curates Mexico's Dia de los Muertos Exhibition at London Gallery

Publication date:

Colourful Greys

Giovanna Violi (MA Caribbean and Latin American Studies, 2013-15) is the curator of Colourful Greys: Liminal Spaces Between Life and Death, Appreciation and Appropriation at the Square Gallery in London. Far from claiming a complete rendering of all Dia de los Muertos aspects and nuances, this exhibition is aimed at giving the viewer a snippet of what this astonishing celebration is like as observed, experienced and thought of by several artists, both insiders and outsiders of Mexican culture. A dialogue is thus created between the various points of view, allowing the viewer to appreciate the liminal space that can be found between the realities of life and death, opposite, yet so close to each other as celebrated in Dia de los Muertos, as well as the problematic phenomenon of cultural appropriation, often defended through claims of appreciation, that sometimes affect the festivities. This exhibition runs between December 9 and 11, and is presented by CuratorLove and Osterly.
