Santiago Borja for the Mexico Pavilion

Until the Songs Spring, Mexico Pavilion

The Ministry of Culture of the Government of Mexico and the National Institute of Fine Arts and
Literature present “Until the Songs Spring,” on view at the Mexican Pavilion during the 59th Venice Biennale. The show, curated by Catalina Lozano and Mauricio Marcin, features Mariana Castillo
Deball
, Naomi Rincón Gallardo, Fernando Palma Rodríguez, and Santiago Borja. These artists
approach uncolonized forms of knowledge, thinking and perceiving the separation of humanity and
technology from nature in ways that question the modern Western categories of “natural resources”,
“crafts”, “rituals”, and “popular art”. The title, a variation of a verse from the Poem of Temilotzin–a poet
and defender of Tenochtitlan against invaders–evokes the persistence of struggles to defend dissident
images of an alternative, decolonial future.
