Baxter St at CCNY is pleased to present an exhibition of photography and video, curated by Jerry Vezzuso. This exhibition brings together three emerging artists from Mexico who situate their subjects within vivid and liminal landscapes of fantasy, dream, and make-believe.

About

Sergio Fonseca explores machismo, sexuality, and male personas in a video called Estriper. On a bare stage he performs seductively as a stripper, playing three iconic characters: a cowboy, a rapper, and a wrestler.  In a second video, 180kph, he traces the path of a biker shooting across a desert horizon, timed to a popular ballad of longing and desire. Juan Carlos López Morales makes uncanny images that hint at a mysterious narrative, combining portraits with details of environments and figures to create a heightened sense of foreboding and déjà vu.  His evocative photographs in dim light are singular glimpses that hover between fluid dimensions of the real and unreal. Roberto Tondopo depicts his niece and nephew at play, exploring their transition from childhood to adolescence as they enact stories from the artist’s own childhood that shaped his identity as he grew up.  Part reality, part fiction, the remembered tales deal with violence and rites of passage.
