The day of the exhibition “¡Queremos contarte un cuento!” finally arrived and this time the Art Gallery “El Jaguar Despertado” was the place where 16 artists from Tabasco, Chiapas, Jalisco and Germany (Göttingen and Duderstadt) exhibited their art works.

The original idea of the exhibition was by the German artist Conny Hiller and I, and it came out in 2013 when we realized that most people like stories, and they also like being told stories, reason why we selected the title “We would like to tell you a story!”. The main goal was to invite artists with a strong conceptual proposal inspired in all the stories we have been told during our lives (and believe me we refered to “all kinds of stories”).
Then the artist from Chiapas Jorge Zamorano and I developed this idea and invited artists from Tabasco, Chiapas, Jalisco and also international artists from Germany to participate. As the curator of this exhibition, he selected the participants based on the innovative, creative and original proposals.
Thus, the dream came true and we had the opportunity to present this fun, creative and interactive exhibition…
Here are the photos of the opening…
People looking the art pieces and at the same time talking to some of the artists who could be there.
This piece titled “The day I lost my umbrella” by Lüder Mosler was a total hit and many people took a photo of it.
It was a night where many artists gathered to see and talk about what other artists from Tabasco, Chiapas, Jalisco and Germany are doing, for example these three pieces by Conny Hiller which show what the refugees in Europe experience in their journey to this continent.
Six artists from Chiapas presented their work for the first time at the Galería de Arte “El Jaguar Despertado”.

It was an exhibition where the guests could interact with the art.
Even this kid was curious about this piece by Adrián Quiroz.
The diversity of the art pieces led to very interesting conversations.

My dear friends supporting me all the time.
Interesting and creative pieces by Christiane Mosler titled “Behind the curtain” and “In front of the curtain”.
One of the favorite pieces was the one by Conny Hiller titled “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” about the refugees in Europe.

As I mentioned, it was a night full of artists, from painters, sculptors, photographers to new media artists. This emerging artist wanted a photograph with my painting titled “Your eyes in my mirror” inspired by the short story by Yoana Vargas Magaña.

Very proud of his work is the artist Darwin Cruz.
