Performance: International Gathering of Women-Mountains

Saturday, February 22, 2020 - 3:00pm

articule has the pleasure of inviting you to a performance by Amanda Ruiz Méndez (MTL) as part of the exhibition When the Mountains Move"International Gathering of Women-Mountains" invites four women, all activists from Montreal and of different backgrounds and ages, to weave words written by non-mainstream, non western women on relationships to the territories where they live.

When the Mountains Move is a material based research-exhibition that develops from the study of the indigenous Mexican Zapatista movement as a living example of resistance against capitalism, and as a social body that practices hope and resonates locally and internationally. Particularly, this exhibition focuses on the role of women in this movement as they have also been the force and the core of another fight: the fight against patriarchy. A resistance within the resistance. The exhibition includes four artworks that connect fiction with the creation of knowledge, while establishing an imaginary and relational dialogue between women.

Amanda Ruiz Méndez is a Mexican artist based in Montreal. Her work incorporates different modes of collectiveness, from art teaching to participatory performances and activism. She considers social mobilization as a fundamentally creative process where art occupies the public space while cultivating collective memory.
