Disidencia consists on a serie of works that are on the edge of art and activism to question contemporary directions.This exhibition has a body of videos that document political environments in order to tackle ecological and social contemporary issues.



Disidencia gathers six video installations and two slide projections and  focuses on the confluence of art and political action. Minerva Cuevas takes the language of marketing and advertisement for many of her works to engage with pop culture icons to re-frame and confront social relationships, and the exploitation of natural resources.
