For the first time, Julien Heintz
, artist represented by the gallery pal project, shows his work outside of France. He's presenting a new body of works in Mexico City, during a group exhibition at JO-HS in partnership with HATCH, from February 7 to March 30, 2023. This exhibition will be held during the prestigious international fair Zona Maco. The exhibition “Collective Imagination // Imaginación Colectiva’' identifies such creative practices that look to the future and break past the myths and traditions of society that preserve structures of power and prevent progress. The artists included in the 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.
"JO-HS is a residency space and art consulting firm founded by Elisabeth Johs in a serpentine building with airy openings lending natural light to a group show entitled “Collective Imagination.” Of the show’s title and space itself, Johs affirmed that “it takes a collective to have a collective imagination,” and the work from artists like Floria González, Pedro Assam, Neil Hamamoto, and Julien Heintz demonstrates this communal spirit."
