'If I Could Wish For Something' named one of the art highlights of 2021

Åsdam writes:

"Dora Garcia’s exhibition at Fotogalleriet, If I Could Wish for Something, possessed a very special kind of meaningful excess. To me, the film Si pudiera desear algo (2021) made a particularly strong impression. Based on footage shot by proxy of feminist protest rallies against the handling and fetishisation, by media and authorities, of murders of women in Mexico, Garcia turns the trans- woman known as “the witch from texcoco” and the protest rallies themselves into main protagonists. Strong and direct in its political portrayal of events, the film is also a celebration of resistance and deviation."

Åsdam also mentions the BA degree show at Nordland School of Arts and Film, Lofoten, curated by Camilla Fagerli and the exhibition Ready Mix by artist Lucy Raven, shown at Dia Chelsea in New York City.
