We are pleased to announce the upcoming opening of “The Meeting of the Horse” by Greek artist Eleni Giannopoulou and Mexican artist Tania Reza at ZAZ10TS gallery, on October 16th. The exhibition will present an immersive installation of theatrical sculptures/costumes addressing the symbolism of the Horse by Giannopoulou set in dialogue with the homonymous video installation created by Giannopoulou in collaboration with Reza. The two artists worked with an all-female, Mexican crew of artists and cinema professionals standing with and in support of feminist movements currently fighting for women’s rights in Mexico.
The exhibition is deeply vulnerable, direct, and provocative in the best of ways.
