Hi dear ones reading. This is Paola Castelo. I’m originally from Sonora, Mexico and my roots are from the indigenous Yaqui of Sonora. I’m an artist, a mother of two daughters and the founder of Art Movement platform Vuelta Sur. I’m also the founder and director of the Vuelta Sur Arts and Culture foundation. To read more about my story on why I do the work I do and more about what our foundation does you can visit our website vueltasur.com
WHAT ARE YOU SHOWING?
Our platform Vuelta Sur has curated an incredible list of exhibitions happening as well as events. I wouldn’t miss the Museo Tamayo Gala event as is to raise funds for the next year ahead of exhibitions. As many of you might know the government of Mexico cut all funding for the arts and culture so I think is important we support the museums we have to continue increasing our international knowledge in the arts and culture. I also wouldn’t miss meeting Gabriel Orozco at Kurimanzutto Gallery.
WHO ARE ARTISTS TO WATCH?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING BETWEEN AND AFTER THE SHOWS?
This year Vuelta Sur has two museum collaborations and 14 partnerships with renowned galleries so my time will be divided between all the visits and also some nighttime events. On Tuesday night I will be at “No se vende” party at the abandoned house of Porfirio Diaz. On Thursday night at the Museo Tamayo Gala.
I’m excited for all the exhibitions happening as I know how much work goes into them. I truly admire and congratulate all the teams involved in making their dreams a reality and for their continued efforts in making sure Mexico is one of the top countries for emerging arts and culture.
Hugs to everyone reading and if you see me please say hi!
