Agua del día is a collective exhibition that opens to the idea of ​​a fluid and constantly changing artistic

production. For its first edition, the curatorial platform AGUAS invites 10 artists from Mexico City and Brussels

whose artistic practices include a multiple conception, with several centers of influence, techniques or decision-

making. The title of the exhibition refers to the 'aguas frescas' (fresh waters) found in Mexico street stands or

restaurants and the daily and perishable dimension of its production. Through in-situ proposals, sculptures and

installations but also photo murals, performances and drawings, the artists implement processes open to time,

connecting with the immediacy of a daily production
