8th June – 18 August 2023
JO-HS CDMX presents ‘Homesick’, a group exhibition curated by Fabiola Talavera (Monterrey, 1995), open from the 8th of June until the 18th of August 2023.

The title of the show, ‘Homesick’, alludes to the yearning for a time and space that is not found anymore in the present. As manifested by the works in the exhibition, the concept of home is not necessarily associated with a geographical place, but rather persons of the past, objects of everyday life, family histories and formative youth times. Thus, homesickness appears as a deeper human longing to cling unto something familiar, a recognizable shelter in an entropic ever-changing world. ‘Homesick’ brings together the work of eleven artists from different latitudes that have made Mexico their home, and locals who have departed to other territories:

Avantgardo, Nicolás Colón, Bruno Enciso, Floria González, Maximiliano León, Samuel Nicolle, Akwetey Orraca-Tetteh, Isaac De Reza, José De Sancristóbal, Charlie Godet Thomas and Andrea Villalón.

Wild Flowers, 2023 is comprised of 12 paintings and a selection of watercolours made during Rose’s five-week residency at JO-HS. Collecting memories from her surroundings within Mexico City, and previously also from the States of Oaxaca and the Yucatan, Rose references wildlife, flora, and architecture through colour, shape, texture.  In her paintings are found both domestic scenes and imagery that flaunt Mexico’s wild nature and urban city.


Collective Imagination / Imaginación Colectiva

7th February – 30th March 2023

The artists included in our group show seek to question societal boundaries by repurposing everyday images or objects and giving them new meaning. They aim to encourage alternative ways of thinking, in effect a new collective imagination. Through exploration with subject matter and materials these 10 exhibiting artists hold up a mirror, pushing viewers to question the norm and inspire new ways of seeing and acting.

Referring to “keremos”, this is a spanish word and its correct spelling is “queremos”, which means “we want”. As it is well known, the use of clay has been one of the earliest forms of expression. Intended for a utilitarian or aesthetic purpose, its creation has one thing in common: human contact.

November 4 - December 4th
The curatorial project VIVARIUM was first conceived as a collaboration between Brazilian art gardener Andre Feliciano and curator Elisabeth Johs as they pondered  the idea of a museum / gallery where art could be sustained rather than left to die and subside. The conundrum of art’s purpose in society brought forward many questions. If art is a mechanism for change through shifting our thoughts, How do we define what art needs to be in order to be alive? How can art be sustained?  What does art need to re-generate? What should we ask of art?...
