Teresa Irene Barrera
Opening this Thursday, July 21 (6-8 pm)
Gallery 50, Toronto
Exhibition runs thru July 31, 2016

Teresa Irene Barrera was born in Mexico City in 1981, where she continues live and work, creating images on the periphery of conventional art circles. The detachment is both physical and ideological. Growing up in marginalized areas on the outskirts of the colossal metropolis has caused her a certain degree of embarrassment and isolation, the distances between people in the city being magnified by the congestion, class division and pre-conceived notions of “suitable” places for an artist to reside. Her own stand against the elitist nature of galleries and museums has also led her to explore alternate venues and forms of expression. However, it would be wrong to say she is completely ignored or disconnected from a broad artistic community. With surprising speed, energy and urgency Teresa moves like a hummingbird around the city and the country. She has painted large scale murals, flirted with street art on an international scale, taught art in rural communities and exhibited all over Mexico. Making use of social media, she has also generated her own mythology as a means of survival as an independent artist. This will be her first exhibition outside of Mexico.

In March 2016 I was on a trip to Hong Kong for my niece’s wedding. That was also the same time when the annual ART BASEL happened. Art surfaced everywhere. All photographs in this series were taken in Hong Kong, except one, which was taken on my way back home from the airport through the taxi window. While I was on the trip, my best friend Fai passed away in Toronto. It was so sudden, and sad. I want to dedicate this series of photographs to him, in memory of our good old Hong Kong days in the seventies and eighties. His family moved to Toronto in the late eighties. After nine years, we joined them and celebrated the Millennium.
