We are delighted to announce the Casa X exhibition at the UK-Mexican Arts Society. Casa X is a group show of seven Latinx-identifying artists coming together under one roof as 'homemakers' to forge a surreal and multi-sensorial vision of 'home'. Ranging from installations to photography and moving image, this body of work serves as a prompt to redefine notions of home in the wake of the ‘shifting border’, both tangible and imagined, as the new paradigm.

Featuring artists from Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela, Casa X weaves together the multiplicity of experiences of the Latinx diasporic community, envisioning 'home' as a fluid site of negotiation. These artists strive to disrupt linear conceptions of Latinx identities, cultivating their own image and vision of what ‘home’ entails in an increasingly globalised world. Their work is characterised by an emotional impetus to reflect on collective experience, exploring Latinx identity, migration, and giving voice to minority communities.

Laden with rich histories, the works interact with one and other to construct conversations between past and present, here and there, home and “home”. The artists explore these themes through questions of family, food, and shifting familiarities.

In collaboration with the Latinxs Collective of UAL and the UK Mexican Arts Society, Casa X is curated by a group of third-year students on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins. This joint effort itself testifies to the notion of home as presented by Casa X- the intersection of multiple, cross-cultural trajectories, where wholeness may be achieved among disunified parts.
