Cuchifritos Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Meme Tactics: How Artists Innovate Media to Make Underheard Voices Go Viral. The exhibit, on view September 6 through October 20, 2019, features work by three artists and collectives, Amy Suo Wu, Elyla Sinvergüenza, and Xiaoshi Qin + Hera Chan who craft ways to negotiate power and assert presence by defying dominant media narratives in China, Cuba, Nicaragua and beyond. Here, artists find creative and speculative ways to amplify, build on and disseminate messages from underheard social movements.
The opening reception will be held in the gallery on Friday, September 6 from 6-8 pm. There will be an after-party held at Beverly’s (21 Essex St, New York, NY) with a special performance by Elyla Sinvergüenza at 10 pm.
