When we act interconnecting with our immediate circle of influence to nurture each other physically or emotionally, we create an energetic circle of resilience. Acting within our closest relations generates a ripple effect expanding into concentric rings touched by awareness, strength, and the possibility to document the memory of a specific moment in time.
Join us in the conversation where Rina Gitlin, Eugenia Peralta and Laura Villarreal will share their projects originating circles of education, women resilience and the collective memory of the recent past.
Trigger of Hope is an art exhibition curated by Rina Gitlin and Adriana Torres that explores the shadows of adversity but the path for growth and freedom.
The women artists presented in this exhibition do not quit; they fight, they show resilience. Some of them make knots but later release them. Some others step into deep holes but find a way to rise, and the secret weapon to move forward is sisterhood, togetherness, and profound gratitude.

As an art consultant, my vision is to teach and educate people in the process of collecting art. My purpose is to humanize that process; learn about the clients’ tastes, experiences, and motivations, teaching them about the details of starting or complementing their own collections. Throughout this, the collectors learn about the artists, their artworks and the history and inspiration behind their creations.
I make sure to cultivate deeper connections with my clients, as well as the artists, resulting in a mindful, conscientious and deeper experience.
Diary of the Recent Past is a series of thread portraits that gives us a powerful insight into the role of memory and how we deal with it. It serves as a critique of collective amnesia and its relation to historical events. It includes 100+ thread drawings on linen portraying masked individuals that have been part of my originating circles since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a visual documentation of this era while touching issues of sense of place, security, interconnectedness, memory, and fragility.
