MarixonX by Arttitude is a groundbreaking initiative that provides a secure and inclusive platform for local LGBTQIA Latino/a/x/e artists. This innovative program features traveling art exhibitions showcasing the talents of LGBTQ+ Latinx artists, presenting both two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork.
MarixonX reclaims and redefines the term "Maricón" within a context of unity rather than offense, paving the way for meaningful discussions on crucial issues affecting LGBTQ+ Latino/a/x/e communities. Through art, the program fosters dialogue rather than debate, delving into topics such as identity, culture, religion, media, politics, social climates, and sexual and gender identity.
Participating artists are encouraged to explore their personal relationships, historical perspectives, and their understanding of Queer Latinx issues, past or present, allowing their creativity to be informed by these experiences. By challenging misinformation and amplifying the voices of often marginalized communities, MarixonX aims to cultivate a sense of community and awareness.
Through its art exhibitions, MarixonX strives to promote understanding, appreciation, and solidarity among LGBTQIA Latinx individuals and society at large. This program is a beacon of empowerment, highlighting the rich and diverse artistic expressions of LGBTQ+ Latino/a/x/e artists while fostering a platform for open and constructive conversations.
