CANON: VIRGENES DE LA PUERTA
CANON: LOS CHICOS y ANDA
"To embrace all aspects of self: the masculine and the feminine, the divine and the human, the resilience and the vulnerability, this is the core of [Canon]. And it’s important to remember that these aren’t issues that belong to Peru exclusively, these are issues of humanity that belong to the world."
Maria Brito, Huffington Post
"[Canon is] a beautifully aggressive, raw and ever-thoughtful experience. Every image is worth considering and every word worth reading."
David Graver, Cool Hunting
"Canon," an exhibition by collaborative artists Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo and Andrew Mroczek, functions on two very different levels. On one hand, it’s a celebration of Peru and its people, landscapes, and traditions. On the other, it’s a scathing critique of the country’s alarming disregard for LGBT rights."
Bridget Gleeson, Artsy
"Despite the ruckus their exhibition has caused, or indeed because of it, Barboza-Gubo and Mroczek have brought the LGBTQI issues in Peru into the public domain, exposing both the influence of Catholicism on society, but also reflecting the desire to change and move forward."
