Santa Muerte at Sacred Machine, Arizona

by Kirsten AndersonPosted on

Here at Hi Fructose we love all manner of things that gobump in the night, and so always look forward to the Halloween season. Thisyear brings a special treat via artists Daniel Martin Diaz and Paula CatherineValencia, who curated a special show entitled “Santa Muerta” which opens in Tucson,Arizona on Friday October 28th. Meant to originally pay tribute to the darkerside of Southwestern spiritual tradition (“Santa Muerte” is a death goddess figure who is purported to have arisen as a convergence of Catholic and Meso-American beliefs, and whose worship was forced underground only to re-emerge with a bang in the late 20th century), the show has since organically branched out father withthe inclusion of artists from around the globe offering up beautiful albeitslightly spooky offerings for the exhibition.
