El Juego de las Transformaciones / The Game of Transformations

To commemorate the 15th Anniversary of Celebrate Mexico Now Festival, visual artist Gabriela Galván has devised a sensory food installation experience to be showcased at MOFAD.

Galván’s sculptures will represent three distinct moments in Mexican history, Prehispanic, Colonial, and Contemporary,  exposing Mexican culture and cuisine through ingredients, techniques, and storytelling. The interactive sculptures will showcase the rich textures and flavors unique to Mexico, celebrating both tradition and innovation.

Celebrate Mexico Now’s Quinceañera with us at MOFAD – come to hear the story and then get a taste of Mexico through the ages. Cocktails and bites from the sculptures will be served.

Special thanks to John Hutt, Executive Chef at MOFAD.

El Juego de la Transformaciones is possible thanks to the support of MOFAD .Additional support from GOYA and Mezcal Pierde Almas.

Gabriela Galván creates formal meditations on found and everyday object, which are used to activate the relationship between audience and site. Working across disciplines—installation, public art, sculpture, video, drawing, and performance— Galván’s art never settles in a fixed form. Her objects are catalyst for personal and social transformations.

She has exhibited in venues such as Museo Nacional de Arte Reina Sofía (Spain), Zacheta National Gallery (Poland), Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien (Germany), and in her native Mexico at Museo Tamayo, Museo de Arte Moderno, and Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico (in collaboration with the Centre George Pompidou), among others. Gabriela Galván was born in Mexico City. She lives and works in New York.
