“Everyday Miracles Can Happan” – Mexican Contemporary Art Exhibition

12:00pm – 6:00pm
Free

This art exhibition focuses around the ex-voto as an object of spiritual devotion, and a window to Mexican everyday life. A selection of 25 contemporary artworks will be shown that reinterpret the ex-voto in different ways that range from narrating personal stories to deconstructing the practice itself. An ex-voto is a votive painting that is traditionally used to show gratitude to a saint or god that granted a favor. Nowadays, ex-votos are still used within a religious context and more recently as pieces of contemporary art. Takes place at Okappachan House.
