Everything Here is Volcanic

The work of Aldo Álvarez Tostado, Victor Barragán, Frida Escobedo, Fernando Laposse, Pedro Reyes, SANGREE, Andrés Souto, and more are brought together in the group show “Everything Here Is Volcanic” at Friedman Benda in New York. The exhibition is curated by the independent curator, editor, and researcher Mario Ballesteros, and is on view from January 12 to February 18, 2023.

Ballesteros selected a range of Mexican creatives and makers from around the country, working across mediums and categories. Playing with the idea of the traditional Mexican domestic sphere, where the kitchen is central and living spaces are communal, several new and commissioned works mark what may be several firsts in terms of objects shown in the gallery—things like a working grill or a horse saddle. Utterly unique interpretations of cultural imagery appear in mosaics, ceramics, stones, wood, leather, concrete, and even cactus, exemplifying the renegade approach of the artists whose work is on view.
