Magazine | “Yvette Mayorga creates environments of excess using confection materials as theatres of the hopes and aspirations of immigrants, which are also shrines to the violence of the passage into an imaginary utopia.” In the latest issue of ART India, Zeenat Nagree forwards a proposal for an exhibition featuring works by five artists - Yolanda Duarte (b. 1983, Caracas, Venezuela), Maryam Hoseini (b. 1988, Tehran, Iran), Afsana Sharmin Zhumpi (b.1984, Chittagong, Bangladesh), Ranjeeta Kumari (b. 1983, Mokama, India), and Yvette Mayorga (b. 1991, Silvis, United States of America). Read more about this exhibition in the issue, available on stands and also on Magzter (link in bio).
