Nobody, nobody will believe the fire if the smoke does not give signals
This exhibition revolves around the landscape as a concept in crisis. On the one hand, it is a pictorial genre with a very long tradition that is currently being questioned for its extractivist nature: the representation of a terrain that is guided by the desire to know it, explore it, dominate it and exploit it. Under analysis, the landscape reveals its colonial character and we can trace its relation with capitalism: land ownership as one of the first ways to accumulate capital. But these landscapes not only refer to what is represented but to whoever observes it; we have trained our eyes to read the territories under the artificial geometry of the scopic technologies of modernity. The horizon line, the vanishing point and the very division of the planet into hemispheres, tropics and the line of the equator itself guide us towards a rational configuration of space that satisfies the human desire to control everything that surrounds it. How could we conceive a landscape without gravity, losing anchorage to the ground?

Facing this, how to approach these ideas from Mexico City, a city where the "landscapes" have gone from intense greens and blues to the ashen gray of concrete? The exhibition brings together works that study the bleakness of the landscape dispossession, the landscape of a city afflicted by real estate speculation, gentrification, touristification and the rapid transformation of the social fabric that conforms it; a series of processes that also leave traces in the material sphere. Finally, the exhibition invites us to think of the city as an event rather than a determined surface: a series of factors and forces that come together in time and space, creating relationships that outline its contours and shape what is contained within them. By conceiving the city as an event, it becomes a dynamic entity affected by flows and transits, and is also defined by the constant exchange between the territories that surround it and that gradually engulf it.

Lastly, the selection of artists does not intend to provide a representative sample, a generational survey or postulate local representatives, however, it has endeavored to explore both the experience and the approach of female artists on this subject. Although we women experience the city in a different way, it is also the control of their bodies –as well as their reproductive work– that has enabled the emergence of the capitalist system and sustains it to date. Like the territories, the bodies have been romanticized from different pictorial genres: crises can be productive moments to rethink the path towards the future.

Fabiola Iza (Mexico City, 1986) is an independent curator, art historian, and writer. Strongly influenced by feminist thought and decolonial theory, her projects and texts are interested in issues related to cultural transmission and archival concepts. She has a Master's in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths College, University of London and a degree in Art from the Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana. She has received scholarships and support from the Board of Contemporary Art, the Coppel Collection, FONCA–National Fund for Culture and the Arts, CONACYT–National Council for Science and Technology, Banco Santander (United Kingdom) and the Mercosur Biennial Foundation (Brazil); she has carried out residences or research stays in Buenos Aires, Lima and Paris; and regularly collaborates with different specialized publications, including Artforum. She was curator of Casa del Lago-UNAM from 2011 to 2013 and since 2014 she has been director of the THEORÍA collection of the Taller de Ediciones Económicas.

BODEGA ACME
With its own identity that refers to the old art salons, it has the purpose of giving continuity to the work of participating artists in past editions, by exhibiting their most recent work.

Curarated by: Gaby Cepeda
Artists: Daniel Aguilar, Debora Delmar, Tomás Diaz Cedeño, Emilia García, Camila GB, Samuel Guerrero, Mónica Heller, Mili Herrera, Agus Leal, Valentina Liernur, Yeni Mao, Vero Madanes, Emanuele Marcuccio, Andy Medina, Sammy Nicolle, Kristin Reger, Milagros Rojas, Marianx Roma, Madeline Jiménez Santil, Rosario Zorraquin and Bárbara Sánchez Kane.

A fashionable crowd lurching towards the eclipse
We find ourselves in a global panorama that tends towards acceleration. More and more our affective and interpersonal interactions, however minimal they may be, become monetizable and marketable gestures, data that is trafficked in industrial quantities in order to be analyzed and returned to us in the form of algorithms and advertising. The acceleration that directs all human action towards the eclipse of the commodity is not alien to contemporary art.

This exhibition is located at a specific point in its current situation: the intersection between the art object and its increasingly complex relationship with fashion. Although it is a trend that has appeared for a long time –in Elsa Schiaparelli and the surrealists, in Frida and her cover of Vogue, in the experiments with Bernadette Corporation's 90s fashion editorials, among many others–, it is also true that in recent years, fashion and its forms of production have reached a more symbiotic role with contemporary art.

The show argues that the overlapping of the two fields is one that manages to profoundly transform both, and decides to focus on what fashion modifies about the art object and specifically about its conceptions of body and identity. From this place, the selected works address a number of issues close to the collusion between fashion and art: celebrity culture, criticism of luxury and value, the materiality of clothing, the cool and trendy, the impossibility of representing ourselves through consumption, the body as an avatar, the malleability of subjectivity, eventual alienation, and the seductive fiction that underlies many of the motivations of both artistic fields: the eternal and promising decline of aspirational consumption.

Gaby Cepeda (Veracruz, 1985) is a writer, critic and curator. Her work circulates counter-humanism to think about technology, feminisms, accelerationism and the working conditions of art. She graduated with honors with a Master's Degree in Art History/Contemporary Art from UNAM, graduated in Photography from UANL in Monterrey, participated in the Artists and Curators Program at Torcuato DiTella University in Buenos Aires, was a Curating professor of at the Escuela de Arte Corriente Alterna in Lima, and was invited as Guest Professor at the Royal Academy of Art in Stockholm. She has published articles in Artforum, Art in America, Art Review, Terremoto, Rhizome, among others. She is currently Associate Curator at the Carrillo Gil Art Museum.

GUEST PROJECTS
Curated by: Ana Castella

Guest Projects is a section of Mexican and foreign galleries, independent spaces and residency programs. Each gallery invites a single artist to present a proposal in one of the rooms of the house in a project room format.

For the Guest Projects section in Salíon ACME No. 10, it was curated based on the Oblique Strategies (1975) methodology by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt: a deck of cards with phrases or indications created with the intention of unlocking creativity. These phrases are revisited with each project to offer both the artists and the spaces, the curator and the public, a new way of approaching the 30 proposals for Invited Projects, where hybrid formats, peculiar materials and immersive environments predominate.

Ana Castella is an independent curator working in Mexico City. She has worked in commercial galleries in Mexico and the United Kingdom and has collaborated with Latin American fairs such as arteBA in Buenos Aires and ArtBO in Bogotá. She recently curated the exhibition miss fotojapón with the Colombian artist Juan Pablo Echeverri (1978-2022) at the MAHG, in Léon and Portrait of an artist in PEANA, Mexico City. Additionally, she collaborates as a representative of Latin America, Spain and Portugal for Artforum.

Cascade Voice
Mariela Scafati
Courtesy of the artist Isla Flotante and Travesía Cuatro
Cascade Voice is a work made up of a set of paintings of different sizes, in red and pink tones, suspended and tied with ropes. Hand-painted texts are read over these geometric abstractions, found poetry that arises from the artist's daily life, her moods, newspapers, e-mails, on the radio, WhatsApp messages, ideas and many other questions, involving the collective, desires, utopias, concepts that inspire us to continue supporting the street.

Mariela Scafati is a queer painter, screen printer, and activist, who uses unframed monochrome canvases to create three-dimensional objects and installations that reinterpret traditional genres such as portraiture and landscape.

PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
The performance program takes place in different spaces of the house. It is open to all kinds of actions that involve the body, the space and every sense. This year our program will be dedicated to carrying out sound actions.

Avantgardo
When the sun heats
The illusion is not to have a tan, it is to go tan. When UV rays dazzle, it is allowed to turn to fantasy for a moment. With charred skin and hackles, a prince whispers to you. What one day was, will not be. The limits threaten to overflow and the half-open gaze reaches to see a ballad to leave your skin golden. The prince whose sun sweetens the stains of bitterness that the aspiration has left in you. I want to lose myself with you as the horizon is lost. Even among the tanning goggles, the space of absence is recognized, the moment that excess allows, perhaps I remember, perhaps I long for, that it feels as much yours as everyone else's. They strip you in the abyss of a fantasy. Who needs the sun? It seems that only the illusion in front is eternal. I still have the springs in my hands. José José enchants you with a serenade while you have buried yourself in a tanning bed. You don't get lost in a fantasy, you find yourself in it again.

Javier Sánchez
Timeless Obsolescence
Timeless Obsolescence is a sound action made by a noise machine built mostly from electronic waste, the machine generates dissonant and harmonic noises, broken frequencies caused by low voltage electricity that is generated inside the device.

Quique Rangel y Mike Sandoval
Dos Contrabajos
Dos Contrabajos is a musical, sound improvisation and intervention project, generated from a search for interaction with other artistic disciplines to generate different sound and expressive possibilities. Obviating the need for a stage or focus, the development of the intervention is generated from coexistence with the works, their discourses and the exhibition space that contains them.

Alena Koleso
The Last Load
Using a washing machine as a musical instrument, The Last Load is a performance that is recorded live with contact microphones connected to a washing machine and then the noise is distorted. The resulting sound grotesquely underscores an ongoing automation of erasing accidental traces of life, as well as a mechanical attempt to return clothing to its socially acceptable state.

Octopoulpe
Octopoulpe is a one-man Mexico-based Korean-French band that plays hardcore-punk/math-core music with interactive videos.

GUEST STATE

Morelos: Invoking time
Collective exhibition
Curated by: Palmera ardiendo
In this section, a curator is invited to articulate an exhibition with the work of artists who live and work in a specific state of the country. This section has allowed us to learn about the work of groups of artists from different contexts in Mexico and the issues they address.
Invoking time brings together a series of artists who explore the confluences between chronological time and the weather. In Spanish the word time can refer to both. The exhibition refuges in the shadows to escape the Morelos climate, warm by definition, and from there, recover the magical, mysterious and inevitable part of time. The show is a call to rain as well as an evocation of the past; It takes the paradox of fleeing from the present and, at the same time, is a celebration of the moment. It explores the contemporary ruin, the transience, the drift of the clouds, the footprint left by the sun in the city, the periods of unimaginable storms for the foreigner and the nostalgia for irretrievable times.

ARTISTS

Juliana Alvarado, Fernanda Araujo, Minerva Ayón, Jaime Colín, María Antonieta de la Rosa Yanieb Fabre, Alonso Galera, Gabriel Garcilazo, Alexandra Germán, Luis Hidalgo, Cisco Jiménez, Magali Lara, Pável Mora, María Naidich, Javier Ocampo, Reynel Ortiz, Benjamin Torres, Leon Yakov

BODEGA ACME

Unknown adress
Curated by: Geovana Ibarra

With an identity that refers to the old art salons, this section has the purpose of giving continuity to the work of participating artists in past editions, by exhibiting their most recent work.

In the manner of the disturbing creature and elusive visitor called Odradek in Franz Kafka's story "Concerns of a Head of the Family"; This exhibition brings together a selection of works based on strangeness, with forms, images and enigmatic relationships that tempt us to look at what is not explicit, to investigate its mysterious link between what seems strange or foreign and what we believe to be recognizable or known.

ARTISTS

Napoleón Aguilera, Gwladys Alonzo, Karian Amaya, Fernanda Barreto, Hiram Constantino, Pablo Dávila, Daniel Evo, Andrea Ferrero Pizarro, Sumie García, Cecilia Miranda, Renata Petersen, Celina Portella, Humberto Ramírez, Vanessa Rivero, Jorge Rosano Gamboa, Jay Vélez, Luis Alfonso Villalobos, Bruno Viruete.

GUEST PROJECTS

For the first time, this section is curated by Ana Castella, curator and cultural manager with more than 15 years of experience in the field of contemporary art. She is a graduate of Central Saint Martins, with a degree in Art, Design and Environment.

Sisyphus in respirator
Pablo Kobayashi

The Patio, located in the central part of the house, will be used to show sculptural or specific installation proposals.

The air. So ubiquitous that it is taken for granted. Physically invisible, we know no conditions devoid of it. The breath is our time marker. Beyond measuritg it chronologically,, the rhythm of our breathing responds to and expresses our physical states; a mood on a variable time scale. It seems that in these global circumstances special attention has been given to this involuntary act and it has acquired other meanings. This constant action, assisted in extreme cases, becomes a sign of anguish, hope, and loss.

Bodega Acme

WELCOME TO FEAR CITY! Una guía de supervivencia para los visitantes de la Ciudad de México. Es una exposición curada por BASE PROYECTOS que incluye el trabajo de artistas que han participado en ediciones anteriores del Salón.

El punto de partida de la muestra, es la adaptación de un panfleto que se distribuía en los aeropuertos de Nueva York en 1975. Con un tono exagerado e irónico, la guía invitaba al visitante a retirarse lo antes posible de la ciudad. Era una extraña promoción de la paranoia como medida para enfrentar la realidad y sobrevivir al infierno de la ciudad.
