Mercancía de Pacotilla

Aparador LA and Aldo Chaparro Studios present Mercancía de Pacotilla, the first U.S. solo exhibition for Mexico City-born visual artist Marek Wolfryd. The exhibition surveys the dominant models of artistic expression seen in late-stage capitalism and the circulation of images, merchandise, and intellectual property deeply rooted in Western thought. Continuing his research into the dynamic interplay between the Far East and the West, the artist relates early modern-era trade routes connecting Asia, America, and Europe, specifically the Manila Galleon, The Road to China, and The Fleet of the West Indies, with contemporary visual culture that mirrors post-capitalist global markets of fabrication and consumption.
