“This place has only three exits, sir: Madness and Death”- René Daumal
The moment between life and death is emblematic. A recurring thought in all of us, at every stage. Death is in films, in books, in our morning news, and in our afternoon walks. Death is in life - always. As Octavio Paz wrote, “Everything flows. What I lived, is dying still.”
In Mexico, death is a celebration. Día de Muertos is not only about those who have left us, but also about those of us who are still here.
Let’s embrace it. Come celebrate with us!
6 pm - 10 pm: Ubuntu Market (Mexican Artisanal Market) - at Upstairs Gallery of Casa Mezcal
6 pm - 10 pm: Drinks & Collaborative Altar - at Botanic Lab
10 pm - 2 am: DJ After Party by Imox - at Botanic Lab
We will be creating a collaborative altar in tribute of loved ones who have passed and we want your help.
It is believed that on November 1st and 2nd the souls of the dead return. The idea of altars is to offer them their favorite foods, water, tequila, mezcal, cigarettes, or even toys (for the souls of the children).
All of this is placed alongside portraits of the dead (www.art-is-fun.com/day-of-the-dead-altars/ for info & inspiration). You can bring anything you want or see fit for our tribute of both life and death.

Traditions and celebrations are amongst our favorite things, which is why Día de Muertos is so special to us. We can't wait to share the market and celebrate this with you!
