Guadalupe Maravilla @Ballroom Marfa

Discover Guadalupe Maravilla’s “Mariposa Relámpago” at Ballroom Marfa.

This is the artist’s largest sculpture to date, which incorporates natural materials, handmade objects, and items collected while retracing his migratory route. Maravilla’s artworks also contain a cosmology of potent symbols and objects that connect the artist’s personal journey with ancient practices of the Indigenous Mayan peoples; diverse spiritual and folk beliefs; and contemporary crises of disease, ecology, and war. Mariposa Relámpago functions as a sculpture, shrine and healing instrument.

The exhibition is open until March 16, 2024.
