Premier — NEW YORK 2019
Visual artist Cuevawolf presents her premiere exhibition La Lotería Viva, the first photographic reinterpretation of the originally illustrated Mexican lotería game. The series consists of 54 images, each representing a card from the lotería game deck. Just like Mexico itself, it evokes a strong sense of magical realism and offers an escape into a world that exists between reality and fantasy. The photographs make up an extraordinary exhibition that embodies the country’s spirit and resurgence in an unprecedented way.
As traditional lotería is deeply tied to family unity, Cuevawolf is calling the Latinx community to gather and help immigrant families who need to find their way back to each other. Part of the profits raised through a silent auction of the portraits will be donated to Make the Road NY.

At the upcoming Brooklyn edition of The Other Art Fair, Cueva will be showing her Viva La Loteria MX series.Loteria game in its 250-year history. The series brings to life the traditional illustrations of the game and aims to bring awareness of Mexican culture to the United states. The work is an unconventional celebration and tribute to her native country Mexico with images constructed to symbolize family unity. Andrea found inspiration not only from Mexican heritage but also in her frustration with the foreign representation of Mexicans and their culture, which tends to be imprecise and unfavorable.
“With each portrait, I seek to expose misconceptions and stereotypes that linger in our collective consciousness about our culture,”
