Claudia Fernández’s “Ceremonia” at Museo Tamayo

By Hermine Adrian

July 28, 2017

Claudia Fernández‘s “Ceremonia” is currently on view at Museo Tamayo in Mexico City through August 20. In it, the artist approaches old and new traditional Mexican objects, rethinking their legacy as well as their role when assimilated into new and diverse cultural contexts.

Through extensive research, Fernández collects crafts, techniques, and stories to share the history of her country. She elevates everyday objects such as tapestries, sombreros, shoes, or pastels to the rank of museum objects. In this presentation, the artist showcases them for their historical value and the craftsmanship they represent. They also exist as symbols of the communities that produced them—focusing on the way people can come together to create, share, and keep a legacy alive.

“Ceremonia” touches upon the social and economic reading we can get from common cultural items. A formidable window into Mexico, and more particularly its extremely diverse historical and artistic customs and legacy, this exhibition is a must-see for any out-of-towner.
