Death Star and the Mayans.

Art, exhibitions

I saw this piece by Ulises Figueroa at the Monterrey Biennial and although it’s not the most serious or deeply thought-provoking work, it was probably the most entertaining and engaging piece at the exhibition. We all crowded around it for a solid ten minutes pointing out the various figurines and pop-culture references, laughing at the newly acquired knowledge that when we see Jabba the Hut.. the end is probably near. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
