Vulcano supports PAC Milan for the personal exhibition of Teresa Margolles, Mexican artist who lives and works between Mexico City and Madrid. With a particular disposition for raw realism, her works reflect the complexities of contemporary society, affected by an alarming violence that’s tearing the world and especially Mexico. Minimalist style with a strong impact, Margolles’s 14 installations explore the uncomfortable themes of death, social injustice, gender hatred, marginality and corruption, generating a constant tension between horror and beauty.
Promoted by the Municipality of Milan – Culture and produced by PAC with Silvana Editoriale, the exhibition is part of the Art Week calendar, a week dedicated to contemporary art, an occasion for Teresa Margolles to present a tribute performance to Karla, a transsexual prostitute murdered in Ciudad Juárez (Mexico) in 2016. A strong action, which leave an open wound on the PAC walls.
