Join us for the opening night of acclaimed Mexican photographer Adel Buzali’s exhibition, Water and proximity. The exhibition brings together Buzali’s most recent work and compiles some of the photographs that initiated the series in 2015.
The work explores how water, an element with charged history and symbolism, becomes, in fact, a connecting fluid that allows us to break normativity and experience a shared proximity. Her lens shows us how bathing suits are only slender materials that separate nude bodies from one another. In the photographs, which play with light and reflection, the subject’s identities blend with the water through the movement of their bodies and the anonymity intended by the photographer. The body in Buzali’s work becomes as fluid as the water that surrounds it.
This event is sponsored and produced by the MCINY. Additional support by Instituto Cervantes, Maestro Dobel and Mezcal Pierde Almas.
