Gabriella Gomez-Mont founded cultural salon Tóxico Cultura to build bridges between the arts within Mexico City. Today, she's transforming Tóxico into an international platform for synthesizing art with a wider range of disciplines, creating new "blueprints for reality."
You’ve said that being a TED Fellow messed with your mind. Why?
Tóxico Cultura -- the independent art lab and cultural salon I founded in 2007 -- is very much about exploring the unmapped gray areas between artistic disciplines, creating experimental territories and temporal states of exception, since creativity and imagination have a way of becoming unbound in those types of spaces.
