The image of the exhibition, a circle symbolizing the pre-Hispanic ball game in which the winner was sacrificed to honour the ancient Gods, illustrates a tradition of ancient Mexico while the artwork showcased hints at the contradictions of modern Mexico.
The goal of the exhibition is to celebrate the Mexican spirit in Canada, a country that has welcomed all the exhibiting artists as newcomers.
