Eduardo Sarabia: Prologue

Eduardo Sarabia,Maureen Paley

Maureen Paley presents Prologue, a new exhibition by Mexican-American artist Eduardo Sarabia that will be installed both at the gallery and at Studio M in Shoreditch. This is his first solo show since his participation in CONDO in 2018.

His work investigates the consequences of global economic forces on local culture and considers how state violence, drug trafficking, late-stage capitalism, and neo-colonial hierarchies permeate ties between the United States and Mexico.

This new exhibition departs slightly from these concerns and reflects on the total eclipse of the sun that will be visible across Mexico on 8 April 2024 and considers how this event defies the politics and geography of national boundaries. Prologue is the first in a series of exhibitions in which Sarabia prepares us for this astronomical event. The final exhibition will take place in the Mazatlán Museum of Art where the path of the eclipse commences. Across ancient cultures, the total eclipse of the sun holds significance and is often perceived as the birth of a star and the initiation of new life. The ability to view the eclipse from Mazatlán, a city within the state of Sinaloa, holds resonance for Sarabia, whose family heralds from this territory and much of his legacy and intimacy with the earth comes from this naturally rich landscape.
