Gabo Martinez, the artist behind "The Land of Flowers," and the exhibition’s curator, María-Elisa Heg, will host an intimate walkthrough of the new body of work in ceramic and print.

Martinez’s vibrant work centers a reclamation of indigenous identity through craft production. Her vivid terracotta vessels and large-scale prints feature motifs like the flower, a deeply significant symbol in the poetic tradition of Nahuatl speakers, known as In xochitl In cuicatl (Flower and Song).

The exhibition transforms the Front Gallery at HCCC into a space vibrating with color and possibility that richly evokes Martinez’s vision of a present and future defined by community, joy, and self-determination.
