BCR presented a day of live broadcasts featuring the city's Mariachi, mezcal, sounds of resistance—all from the exhibition space for Thank You for Believing in Me. The Ruins-curated exhibition featured artists who use sound and video to resist fascism and neoliberalism, and took place during Mexico City's annual Material Art Fair.
Traicion with Live Mariachi Performance
Recalling the soundtrack and atmosphere of Mexico’s queer party Traición, the show hosted disco-sampling DJ sets from Derre Tida, Alan Balthazar, and NAAFI’s Mexican Jihad, plus a very special impromptu Mariachi performance.
With releases on NON and an upcoming PAN ambient compilation, Mexican artist Mya Gomez played a dark but dance floor-friendly mix.
Future Gallery & Lodos Gallery
Future Gallery’s director Mike Ruiz invited Francisco Cordero-Oceguera from Mexico City's Lodos Gallery to talk Mexican food, mezcal, and top picks for Material Art Fair. Future Gallery is a Berlin-based gallery that often deals with music and sonic soundscapes, with a Mexico City pop-up space during the fair.
