Pulse De Nuestrx Corazones

Pulse De Nuestrx Corazones was an interactive altar by Mayra Guadalupe and Eliana Cetto in memory of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy at the SOMArts Dia de los Muertos exhibition. The installation seeks to highlight the joy, safety, and belonging found in queer dance spaces. Songs from the community were collected to represent the sense of family, sanctuary, and celebration of queer life found on the dance floor. In tribute to the lives lost, many of whom were Latinx, the living altar was activated by community interaction, dance, and reflection.
