Angélica Maria Millán Lozano’s first solo exhibition frames treguas or truce as a process of negotiation, acceptance, forgiveness, and healing; between self and body, self and partner, self and beauty, self and history.

Lozano’s work explores rite of passage constructs using the narrative of her abuelita, who was forced into marriage at age fifteen — an age now synonymous with the iconic Latin American Quinsiañera. Lozano reckons with these uneasy truces through textile and soft sculptures that recall clothing and bodily adornment. Sequin, crushed velvet, and lamé forge agency in treguas.
