Today, what’s inalterable is the displacement, the forced or voluntary migrations. Today, rigid notions like purity, tradition and dogmas walk, hand in hand, with mixtures, innovation and experimentation. What is pure seems to diversity itself without the need of masks, and discourses take alternative routes, maneuvering unexpected turns. Or they dissolve completely, leaving space for new perspectives. This is not new. Since the world has been revolving around that indecipherable energetic body that we call sun, we have been reinventing our cultural social and political models. Evidently, these complicated processes have not been too pacific or fair. The most striking ones have been chaotic, insensible and bloody. The Caribbean and Latin America, for example, have witnessed the massive execution and marginalization of the indigenous and African communities. On the same hand, we have also witnessed the admirable capacity of resistance of these cultures which has always been reflected in the artistic realm. What artist has never wanted to visit other places with a brush in his hand and wings on his feet? How many artist have had to live in exile to develop their abilities? Or to express themselves without so many knots? How many painters or sculptors have migrated to free themselves from economic oppression? Countless are the creators that live in the “come and go”. Countless are the creators that grow, mature and forge their vision or the “back and forth”; between farewells or lay offs; under the menacing and fearful stare inside “the other”. For that reason, their work reflects, directly or indirectly, the essence of movement. A gallery and space of convergence: Inhabiting a colonial edification impregnated with stories that talk about changes trough the pass of time, not too far from the sea, we can find the works of artist that come from different corners of the world. In this eclectic space, diverse artistic views convergence, and even the most opposing voices salute each other. The works included in these pages are only a sample of the diversity that characterizes Éxodo Gallery. From Ciudad Juárez to Paris, crossing thought the Caribbean and the North-American territory, an invisible thread displaces itself, uniting each perspective. Now all we need is to string your view as well... Acerca del éxodo del arte Las fronteras, esas barreras visibles o ilusorias entre espacio físico y otro, que en dados momentos parecían ser inalterables, se han ido derrumbando. Hoy, lo inalterable es más bien el desplazamiento, las migraciones forzadas o voluntarias. Hoy nociones rígidas como la pureza, la tradición y los dogmas caminan agarradas de la mano con las mezclas, la innovación y la experimentación. Lo puro parece diversificarse sin necesidad de máscaras, y los discursos toman rutas alternas, maniobrando virajes inesperados; o se disuelven por completo, dejando un espacio para la manifestación de nuevas perspectivas. Esto no es nada nuevo. Desde que el mundo da vueltas alrededor de ese indescifrable cuerpo energético que llamamos sol, hemos reinventado nuestros modelos culturales, sociales y políticos, así como nuestras expresiones artísticas. Evidentemente, estos procesos compiladísimos no han sido del todo pacíficos ni justos. Los más impactantes han sido caóticos, insensibles y sangrientos. El Caribe y Latino América, por ejemplo, han sido testigos de la ejecución masiva y la marginalizacíon de las comunidades indígenas y africanas. De igual modo han presenciado la admirable capacidad de resistencia por parte de estas culturas, la cual siempre se ha visto reflejada en el medio artístico. ¿Qué artista plástico no ha querido visitar otros lugares con un pincel en las manos y alas en los pies? ¿Cuántos artistas se han auto-exiliado para poder desarrollar al máximo sus habilidades? O ¿para poder expresarse sin tantas ataduras? ¿Cuántos pintores o escultores han emigrado para librarse de la opresión económica? Incontavles creadores viven en el ir y venir. Incontables creadores crecen, maduran y forjan sus visiones de mundo en el trajín; entre despedidas o despidos; bajo la mirada amenazante y miedosa - dentro del “otro”. Por tal razón, sus obras plasman, directa o indirectamente, la esencia del movimiento. Galería y espacio de convergencia: Habitando una edificación colonial impregnada de historias de hablan de cambios al paso del tiempo, no muy lejos del mar, podemos encontrar obras creadas por artistas provenientes de diversos rincones del mundo. En un espacio ecléctico convergen diversos acercamientos plásticos, y hasta las voces más opuestos se saludan. Las obras incluidas en estas páginas son sólo una muestra de la diversidad que caracterizada a la Galería Éxodo. Desde Ciudad Juárez hasta Paris, pasando por el Caribe y el territorio estadounidense, se desplaza un hilo invisible que une cada mirada. Ahora sólo nos resta hilvanar la suya...
