Images of Resistance in Mexico 2017-2019 Exhibit

Photography can tell us stories. The exhibition Aquí el pueblo manda! (Here the people rules!) portrays faces and stories that the system denies, pretends to hide or disguise as "folklore."

The photos-stories of this exhibition introduce us to peoples who refuse to be ignored or annihilated and instead keep resisting in one way or another. They are images of Indigenous communities building Zapatista autonomy; faces of Ayotzinapa parents and students protesting in Mexico City; or fists of women demanding no more femicides and claiming “respect our lives!" They are also photos taken while she traveled together with the National Indigenous Congress (CNI) in their campaign “Struggle for Life”.

Christopher Polentz: The Promised Land

Dec 7, 2020 - Feb 14, 2021

Inspired by the golden age of the traveling carnival (1870-1930), with its social outcasts of carny folk, sideshow freaks-and-geeks, I have endeavored to re-represent that unwanted slice of society through the innocence of children.

These children represent vulnerability, the inherent need to be wanted and loved without a thought as to “why?”

I would like my images to nurture compassion for the differences within us all. Our need for acceptability and fitting in. But most of all the need to be valued and loved. My images of children are faultless individuals; possessing obvious imperfections and undesirable qualities, social outcasts, different, through no fault of their own, but nonetheless unwanted and made to feel unnecessary.
