Because Mexicans are now living in many parts of the world, the Day of the Dead is celebrated in almost every corner of the globe, but nowhere will you find the celebrations more elaborate than here in Mexico where it all began. On Saturday, October 28, from 5 to 8pm, Fábrica la Aurora will combine the monthly art walk with the Day of the Dead celebration. Altars honoring the dead will be found in the galleries, courtyards, and corridors. Many of the galleries will be presenting special exhibitions to mark the event. Gallery highlights include an exhibition of blue abstract paintings by CDMX artist Xavier Pizarro. He explores the concept of depth and infinity through a series of works on display at Carral Espacio. Edgardo Kerlegand will mount “De Arquitectos y Profetas,” a new series of paintings created this year. “Metal de los Muertos,” an exhibition that explores various Day of the Dead themes, will be unveiled in the Van Doren Studio, and at Moyshen The Gallery, Guillermo Azuela will have a solo exhibition. Merry Calderoni will present a new series of paintings that are colorful, energetic, and very uplifting for the spirit. Also in the Calderoni Studio, the Beltran Collection of Antiquities and Jade Arroyo jewelry will unveil new works. “Fly Away,” a group show in Galería Manuk will feature the artists Hermine Demiró, Ximena Schlaepfer, Juan Pablo Gómez, Ricardo de la Torre, Ana Rivera, and David Gutiérrez. The Galeria San Francisco Annex will have a special exhibition as well as an altar in the outside patio. Intersección Arte Contemporáneo will inaugurate four new exhibitions by Sergio Garval, Victor Hugo Pérez, Santiago Corral, and Ena Sakamoto. Cerroblanco Joyería will have new pieces of jewelry and clothing along with new paintings by Guillermo Sosa. The exhibition entitled “Invisible” explores the need not to be perceived, but to perceive. The Raé Miller/William Martin Studio will feature paintings by both artists, Rae’s abstract paintings in encaustic and cold wax, and William’s classical and western oils. The Zoho Gallery will create an altar in honor of Chuck Berry and his music. Come and see the latest work of Zoho artists Ilene Ferber, Ellen Johnson, Richard Trumbull, Javier Garcia, and Edna Dickinson, who will exhibit new ceramic lamps. Although the Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 1 and 2, please keep in mind that this year the Fábrica’s celebration will take place a few days earlier on October 28. It is a preliminary to the events that will take place all over town leading up to November 2. Aurora artists hope to see you at the Fábrica to join the celebration commemorating this most Mexican of holidays.
