Terremoto Magazine Launch

Issue 10: Fayuqueros
Guest editor: VPAM Director Pilar Tompkins Rivas

Saturday, October 14, 2017
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us for the launch and presentation of Terremoto’s latest issue, FAYUQUEROS, with guest-editor Pilar Tompkins Rivas, Vincent Price Art Museum’s director, Terremoto's founder and editor-in-chief Dorothée Dupuis and managing editor Diego Del Valle Ríos in conversation with artists Carmen Argote, Jimena Sarno and Raquel Gutiérrez, collaborators of this edition. This issue reflects upon the historical ability of art to move away from secrecy to openly criticize reality.

This issue of Terremoto is about smuggling, understood as a counter hegemonic practice of dissidence and subversion often used to move information, objects and bodies through oppressive boundaries. A fayuquero, in Mexican colloquial Spanish, is a person “who is dedicated to selling the merchandise acquired through smuggling.” Would the real fayuca to be threaded to the mainstream in our time beyond screens and microwaves, not be the progressive ideals that have drowned in the slow shipwreck of the modern left? And also, those initiatives that challenge the hegemonic order?
