In New York, the Museum of Sex presents Canon (Virgenes de la Puerta, Padre Patria, Anda, Los Chicos), a multi-part series of photographs and sculptures by Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo & Andrew Mroczek. The exhibition is both a celebration of the Peruvian LGBTQ community and a call to action against the relentless violence it faces in a society where bearing witness to a public beating of a transgender woman, and the subsequent inaction of bystanders, is an all too frequent occurrence. In an effort to respond, Peruvian artist Barboza-Gubo and American artist Mroczek began to work together in 2013 to shine a light on these social atrocities, while at the same time celebrating the resilience, power, and beauty of their subjects.
