Mexico City art scene heats up Hobart this winter | Photos

This winter Pancho Villa, Hobart, will unveil an exciting art exhibition by Mexico City based photographer Mark Alor Powell.

The fifteen piece pop-up gallery named the ‘Museo of Miracles’ captures the everyday wonders of Mexico City, from its fantastical and surreal architecture to its expressive street art and creative people.

As part of a global tour, the gallery will be open for public viewing from Tuesday 25th of July,

“National Tequila Day” until Sunday 2nd September. Powell says,

“There is a certain imaginative spirit found only in Mexico.

From the extreme contrast and clash of cultures that go back to the conquest, to the contemporary display present within the Mexican landscape.

Events happen unexpectedly and often with a surreal flavour - fiestas, religious ceremonies, street art, buildings and monuments all compete in a cacophony of meaning questioning What is Mexico City?”

Originally from Detroit, Powell has lived and worked in Mexico City for the past 10 years and his renowned and spontaneous street photography has been exhibited around the world.

In celebration of the exhibition, Pancho Villa will also host Milagro Sundays throughout the exhibition period.

Expect to witness the vibrancy, passion and creativity of Mexico City right in the heart of North Hobart, with the freshest $10 Milagro Margaritas, tequila tasting flights, fun photo competitions and a custom authentic Mexican menu.
