For the sixth edition of Material Art Fair, Deslave proudly presents Veneno, a selection of works by Tijuana-Based artists Alida Cervantes, Richard Mendtorr, Alexis Martínez Gutierrez, ELSOLDELRAC, Andrea Carrillo Iglesias, Marisa Raygoza, and a special performance piece by MUXXXE.

Veneno —as in “tirar veneno”, or “throwing shade” in English, a slang originated from black and Latino queer communities and used widely by the drag scene—perfectly encompass in a small booth certain ideas of interest for Deslave; those of queerness, the concept of monstrosity and the deformation of human bodies.

In Veneno, mouths become a clear subject through all the artworks, be it as tools to speak out or as violently distorted —sometimes to the extent of complete eradication— body parts.
