Join MoCA Arlington for an artist talk with Federico Cuatlatcuatl focused on Tiaxcas Intergalácticxs, Topileastronáuticxs, his solo exhibition currently on view at MoCA Arlington.

In experimental film and multimedia installation, Federico Cuatlacuatl explores transborder indigenous Nahua identities. His work envisions indigenous futurity as a means of thinking about history, diasporic legacies, and cultural identities connected to his hometown of Coapan, Cholula, Mexico.

Tiaxcas Intergalácticxs, Topileastronáuticxs includes a new three-channel video alongside regalia the artist has altered for use in the videos. The exhibition highlights the full range of Cuatlacuatl’s practice, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the materiality and physicality of his sculptural installations, along with the expansive vision of his video work.
