The metro in D.F. is truly the working citizen's art museum. Many stations feature permanent murals and sculptures or pre-Hispanic artifacts, such as the Ehecatl pyramid that sits in the middle of metro Pino Suarez. There are also temporary exhibits. These are images from "Familias Mexicanas," currently on view at metro Centro Medico, a transfer point for Lines 3 and 9. It is a series of photographs by Oscar Sanchez doumenting same-sex couples in the capital, in their domestic spaces.
In the image above are Alfonso and Ruben, who according to the exhibit materials first met when Ruben was 11 and Alfonso was 18. Seven years later they ran into each other on the train, and immediately became a couple. They're in an "open relationship," hence the guy in the middle. Also, I noticed they're both wearing the Star of David. Below, more images.
The exhibit is mounted in conjunction with the Museo Universitario del Chopo, and is up until June 30. By the way, after taking these photos late on Tuesday night I headed back to the place where I'm currently staying, at metro Patriotismo, and saw a couple in a loving embrace on a staircase. I managed to snap a photo while taking the escalator to surface level. Yup, two dudes.
