The “Day of the Dead” is celebrated in Mexico every 1st and 2nd of November. Every year, on that Day, many Mexican families place altars with offerings in honor and memory of their loved ones who passed away. The traditional belief is that the deceased visit their living relatives on those days. For this reason, their favorite food and belongings are placed on the Altar, as well as ornaments, religious elements, and candles that help them find their way. There are different styles of creating the Altar of the Dead depending on the region. To celebrate the Day of the Dead in Finland between October 28th and November 7th of 2021, Helinä Rautavaara Museum, in cooperation with the Embassy of Mexico in Finland, will exhibit a carpet-styled Altar made of colored sawdust, which is a traditional Altar of the Day of the Dead in Huamantla, Mexico. The Mexican artist Pedro Cesar Peralta from Tlaxcala curates the exhibition. To continue with the Day of the Dead’s celebrations at the Museum, visitors will also have the possibility to enjoy through Virtual Reality the traditional Zapotecan Altar from Mitla, Oaxaca, Mexico. Mexican artist José Velasco from Oaxaca curated the exhibition to guide us in this cultural immersion of authentic Mexico.
