TRIBUTO BY MARIA JOSE CUEVAS

While checking out the exhibition “El pop nos hara libres” (Pop will set us free) at the MUCA in Mexico, I came across  Tributo, a video by artist Maria Jose Cuevas documenting a tribute to Michael Jackson in Mexico city. The event which took place on his birthday in 2009 a month after his death, attracted more than 15 thousand people of all ages who came together to honor MJ by dancing his famous Thriller choreography on the street, demonstrating, according to the artist, that in Mexico, the king of pop really did set us free.
