The museum is presenting Mestiza Memories, an exhibition in which the Afro-Andalusian artist Carla Hayes Mayoral (born Malaga, 1997) questions the viewer on Spain and Europe’s colonial past through the investigation of identity. Starting with the combination of raffia, a material notably characteristic of African culture, and visual references drawn from the Western collective imagination Hayes Mayoral presents a mestiza and Neo-baroque installation that subverts the notion of spaces of power. Its theatricality and the wonder produced by its seemingly aestheticising execution encourage a deconstruction of the hegemonic account.
