What to See During Mexico City’s Art Week

‘Hic Sunt Dracones’
Deli Gallery
10 February – 19 March

New York-based Deli Gallery’s inaugural exhibition in their Mexico City outpost brings together a group of local and international artists. The selection, mostly painting, porcelain and drawings, is eclectic, organized around currently popular concepts of the expansiveness and limitlessness of the body. Of the local favourites, ASMA shows Spiraling Over-Thinker (2023), one of their fantastical, platinum silicon sculpture-reliefs; Nicole Chaput, a rising star, a trio of her ongoing series of paintings of weird witchy goddesses; and Argentinian-born, Oaxaca-based Carolina Fusilier presents some deeply hued, post-human dreamscapes painted in oil. Of the international artists, a highlight is Queens-based Astrid Terrazas, with her intense, mystical, multi-layered painting La mujer con cara de buitre (2023); as is Amia Yokoyama, whose drippy, sexy feminine porcelain figures are painted in whimsical hues. The show positions Deli’s smart curation, keen on identifying early promise as well as making space for slower-burning creativity.
