The exhibit, Cuerpo Público, is Marina's MA Capstone project and focuses on graffiti as feminist performance and a tool of anti-colonial resistance amidst gender violence and feminicide in Mexico.
Cuerpo Público [Public Body] is a digital exhibit that collects the images of various photojournalists in Mexico and the United States. This exhibit focuses on photos of graffiti in publicly visible spaces. More specifically, this exhibit centralizes graffiti that consciously denounces gender-based violence throughout Mexico and border towns given these sites are tormented by feminicide, an issue that has not been addressed by the state. Hence, this exhibit aims to demonstrate feminist graffiti as a performance of corporeality and the social body, an iteration of anti-colonial resistance, a direct challenge to the patriarchal state, and a contemporary modality of a longer trajectory of feminist performance art in Mexico.
