89 Noches, Museo Antioquia, Medellin, Colombia, 2017

Collective International exhibition that looks into the multiple relationships between sexuality and darkness on the neoliberal world of permanent illumination.


Through a series of artistic projects 89 Noches explore how shadow, the absence of light and night, challenge the sexual and social conventions from the "enlightened environment", and how had offer a background to rise imaginaries for sexual behaviors historically hidden and pointed. Instead to focus on the bad and scary that surround the darkness, the shows suggest that darkness offers as well resistances and freedom opportunities. Exploring those subversives potentialities, 89 Noches goes into the several ways when darkness had been understood into the Modernity: allied to violence, perversity and barbaric. From that way, the project questioned how the modernities conventions had influence into ways to think in dark, the "race", and the gender and sexuality on the Global South, specifically the Latin one.
