Dios Nunca Muere (“God Never Dies”), an awesome exhibition of contemporary Oaxacan art, went off with great success last week at Deluge Gallery in Victoria, Canada. The exhibition showcased works from 17 artists from Oaxaca, Mexico – two being the regions most notable: Daniel Guzman and Dr. Lakra.

The press release for the show explains: “Dios Nunca Muere explores the seismic shift in contemporary art practice in Oaxaca, Mexico over the last two decades. The work of these artists — both individually and collectively — parallels and reflects widespread social, political and economic changes in the region.

Photographer, videographer, and art fanatic, Efren Quiroz, has obtained a sort of fame, in his own right, by producing raw videos of art exhibitions in Canada. Below is his video from Dios Nunca Muere.
