In this Soundbyte, Anna Mikaela Ekstrand talks to PROXYCO’s founders the Mexico City native Alexandra Morris and Laura Saenz, originally from Bogota about the gallery’s inaugural exhibition “Talon Rouge: Six Artists from Mexico Revisit José Juan Tablada and his New York Circle.” For the exhibition, PROXYCO commissioned six contemporary Mexican artists—Verónica Gerber, Javier Hinojosa, Iván Krassoievitch, Edgar Orlaineta, Marco Rountre and Fabiola Torres-Alzaga—to create works that reflect upon José Juan Tablada’s writings, influence, and aesthetic concerns, and the transnational dialogues that made this moment possible.
