The Joyaviva exhibition will open at the Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares (National Museum of Popular Culture) in Mexico City on 10 April. The Museum was opened in 1982 to reflect the cultural diversity of Mexico (see wikipedia).
The Mexican venue will be the first stage in the Latin American journey for Joyaviva. It will continue to Bolivia and Chile. In each location, modern amulets have been developed through ‘charm schools’, where artists considered concerns in their world that needed extra luck. Naturally in Mexico the violence associated with narco-trafficking was in many minds and there are works in the exhibition that will reflect that.
The exhibition will include artwork from Mexico, Australia & New Zealand
