We Care explore those deep familiar relationships and intergenerational connections. The 15 portraits and poetry that are part of this exhibition are a reflection of how daily life activities can become rituals of reflection about femininity, erotism and a way to transmit oral traditions from one generation to the other.Diana Agámez & Luisa Machacón bring to the spotlights the rupture in the orality, familiar laces and traditions that arises when women in the Latin American society need economic independence and there is not enough time to work and take care of the elders. This photography & poetry exhibition will be open to the public from 6th September at CEDLA . +INFO
