Galería Hilario Galguera and El Cuarto de Máquinas and LLYC Foundation present the collective exhibition Puertas de Esperanza | Doors of Hope in collaboration with the LGBTIQ Refuge Casa Frida.
Puertas de Esperanza is an initiative that aims to highlight the resilience, courage, and efforts of LGBTIQ community members who were forced to leave their homes in search of authenticity. Through a collaborative effort between LLYC Foundation, Casa Frida refuge, and Gallery Hilario Galguera/El Cuarto de Máquinas, the project brought together individuals from the LGBTIQ community with various national and international artists to reinterpret their stories using a door as a canvas.
Each intervened door aims to represent the closed doors at home that people left behind and those that opened thanks to their quest for authenticity. For this initiative, we invited seven national and international artists to positively reframe the life stories of seven people who have lived or are living at Casa Frida, an LGBTIQ refuge.
The intervention is an effort to celebrate and acknowledge the life stories of people who have sought refuge at Casa Frida. The seven artists are Denisse Noriega México), Alexis Martínez México), Issa Salliander Sweden), Bárbara Lázara México), Daniel Dugan USA, Yupica Japan), and Israel González México).
