Description

Surveying Mexico's contemporary art scene between roughly 2000 and 2010, this book shows how artists living in Mexico City have stepped beyond the museum and gallery circuits and developed their own contexts for the dissemination of their work by repurposing the city's public spaces. These artists tend to emphasize relational dimensions, soliciting participation and dialogue in their audiences. Most of the works documented here are ephemeral, making this volume an important resource for a fascinating period in Mexico's art culture. Among the 136 artists and collectives--both Mexican and foreign--who have created some 200 works in Mexico City over the period of a decade are Francis Alÿs, Minerva Cuevas, Damian Ortega, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Gabriel Kuri, Carlos Amorales, Teresa Margolles, Lourdes Grobet, Jimmie Durham, Fernando Ortega and Thomas Galssford.show more
