La casa está viva y habla...

Casa X is a group show of seven Latinx-identifying artists coming together under one roof as 'homemakers' to forge a surreal and sensorial vision of 'home'.

 

It envisions 'home' as a fluid site of negotiation, a crossroad of identities where all personal incongruences can unfold and lay to rest. Through the interstices between harmony and dissonance, surrealism and mundanity, wholeness and fragmentation, Casa X cultivates a multiply authored story of Latinx diasporic life.

about

Casa X is a group show of seven Latinx-identifying artists coming together under one roof as 'homemakers' to forge a surreal and sensory vision of 'home'. It envisions 'home' as a fluid site of negotiation, a crossroad of identities where all personal incongruences can unfold and lay to rest. Through the interstices between harmony and dissonance, surrealism and mundanity, wholeness and fragmentation, Casa X cultivates a multiply authored story of Latinx diasporic visions of home. Featuring artists from Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela, Casa X aims to disrupt the contrived linearity imposed onto Latinx identities, instead opting to weave together serpentine narratives, sometimes intersecting, sometimes diverging.

Casa X is curated by a group of third-year students on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins, in collaboration with the UK-Mexican Arts Society and The Latinxs Collective of the University of the Arts London. The student cohort itself is an intersection of multiple trajectories, of divergent paths converging momentarily- a testament to the mobility and dynamism of 'home' in an increasingly globalised world. Such a conception of home points emphatically to the impossibility of upholding claims to cultural essentialism. In this disavowal, we instead opt to embrace the process of forging wholeness in disunified parts, and harmony amid dissonance.
