Resisting the Present showcases the work of Mexico's "New Generation" of artists--the creative forces behind the country's recent and much-discussed art boom. Born mostly after 1975, the 20 artists surveyed here represent an extraordinary scene that has developed over the past 15 years, in and around Mexico City. As Julia Chaplin recently noted in The New York Times, "Mexico City's extremes--its wealth and poverty, the tranquility of its leafy parks and the sunburned chaos of its hectic avenues--are particularly conducive to its current edgy creativity." Looking at 50 works ranging in genre from installation, sculpture and video to drawing and photography, Resisting the Present brings together emerging artists who have demonstrated an acute awareness of the region's extremes. Among the artists selected are Edgardo Aragón, Diego Berruecos, Mariana Castillo Unpacked, Minerva Cuevas, Jonathan Hernández, Arturo Hernández Alcázar, Bayrol Jimenez, Adriana Lara, Gonzalo Lebrija, Pablo Sigg, Tercerunquinto and Héctor Zamora.
