Mex and the City and photographer Carlos Alvarez Montero present



Sarvia Jasso and Kathryn Garcia, Racial Profiling, Mex and the City
Pace Gallery





This dynamic duo is known in art world scenes across the globe. Staying true to their agenda, these two push the envelope in their art show content and titles, from their video and performance collectives, "Brooklyn is Burning" to "Can't Rape the Willing" and "Queering Sex", each project explores gender, sexuality, and identity politics. Collaborating in life and work, Sarvia and Kathryn bring an intense knowledge and passion to every creative initiative. Building on the strength of artist and curator, they continue to develop dramatic and colorful displays. Vice named them a power couple and we are in constant awe of them.

Kathryn's art has been shown at MoMA's PS1, Pace Gallery. She says "I make art to talk about my ideas and political concerns: sex, gender, queerness, desire, trans-, becoming other, becoming flower, becoming man-woman, woman as man, man as woman, or that without distinctions." They continue to build out their intellectual provocations and Kathryn's work will be exhibited this spring in Mexico City.
