The Exhibition opening with the cultural authorities from the State of Tabasco, the Director for Cultural Promotion ICT Ph.D. Paulina Isabel León de la Peña Izundegui, the Fine Arts Coordinator Eduardo Rodas García and PEMEX authorities guest Lobsang de Jesús Díaz López.
This individual exhibition titled “El migrante de sueños: Ni el primero ni el último” (in English “The Migrant of Dreams: Neither the first nor the last one”) is inspired in those brave people who leave their countries searching for a better life in a place where most of the time they aren’t treated with the dignity they deserve or at a place where they can’t even get to.
“I would like that stories that Yoana Vargas Magaña and Jose Ernesto Sotuyo tell us, be only that, stories and not reality.”
The exhibition counts with the valuable participation of the writer Yoana Vargas Magaña and the poet José Ernesto Sotuyo, who interpret the paintings and photographs with a real content in each of their writings.
