Del Otro Lado: A Narrative

@ VOL 24 ON DEC 01, 2017

Angelica Mercado’s work is the ultimate fight for identity. In "Del Otro Lado: A Narrative...," Mercado tackles the tough issues in an attempt to embrace the divide in which she exists. Therefore, her work demonstrates the constant state of confusion in which she stumbles, falls, stands, fights and ultimately lives in, with themes of loss, trauma, longing, healing, and overall finding a sense of belonging in this space she calls home. In a time of escalated tension toward immigrants and their families, “Del Otro Lado,” shines a light on the status quo. For those who are on this side, you will find yourself thinking, questioning, and overall attempting to understand what it means, to live in the in-between; in-between two cultures, two countries, two identities.”

Deo Bagh to host PechaKucha Gwalior

We are very pleased to announce that heritage hotel Deo Bagh Gwalior has joined hands with PechaKucha Gwalior in organizing the most creative event - and the ONLY global platform in Gwalior, aka The City of Zero - on 24th June 2017. While most heritage hotels in Gwalior are born with the beauty and treasures of history, only some of the best hotels in India have the luxury of housing architectural treasures within the property. Deo Bagh is one such example out of all Gwalior hotels. Two 17th-18th century Maratha temples, two splendid cenotaphs and one pavilion with 36 arched doors, within the property make Deo Bagh a unique choice of accommodation in Gwalior! The 15 rooms spread across 5 wings, facing a Nau Bagh, a garden chequered into nine parts are a haven of calm from the daily hustle and bustle of the Indian street, making it the perfect venue to relax among the other Gwalior hotels. Just as PechaKucha Gwalior offers a highly innovative platform to showcase the talent and creativity in the city, it is refreshing to see that heritage hotel Deo Bagh Gwalior shares the same spirit and responsibility in developing and curating the city...virtually for all stakeholders - be they students, business community, NGOs, or other segments of the society. We highly value and appreciate this union, and express our sincere thanks to Deo Bagh's owner Mrs. Uma Devi Jadhav
