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.

“Art is the highest form of hope.”
— Gerhard Richter
So many of us have been working from home for weeks now. Galleries, museums, cafes, and even some parks now have closed. Being an avid believer of seeing art in person, the quarantine we are experiencing collectively has rendered me restless, longing for that exciting inner turmoil evoked when in art’s presence.
