México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990

September 15, 2013 - January 5, 2014

 

México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990 is one of the largest and most ambitious exhibitions in over a decade to examine contemporary art of central Mexico and Mexico City from the 1990s to the present day. Organized by curator Andrea Karnes, the exhibition is the first of its kind to be presented in North Texas.

 

This thematic exhibition features approximately sixty works by twenty artists who explore aspects of the country's complex socio-political climate. The artists in Inside Out tackle issues regarding borders, violence, corruption, economic and civic institutions, and revolution. While they investigate these regional and national issues, they are also firmly engaged with similar concerns and impulses that are universal. As indicated in the title, "Inside" refers to local and "Out" to global.

 

Inside Out presents some of the most important artists working in Mexico today. The exhibition features a variety of media, including sculpture, video, photography, collage, and drawing by the following artists: Eduardo Abaroa, Francis Alÿs, Edgardo Aragón, Artemio, Gustavo Artigas, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Minerva Cuevas, Thomas Glassford, Daniel Guzmán, Jonathan Hernández, José Jiménez Ortiz, Teresa Margolles, Miguel Monroy, Yoshua Okón, Gabriel Orozco, Damián Ortega, Naomi Rincón-Gallardo, Idaid Rodríguez, Joaquin Segura, Melanie Smith, Tercerunquinto, andJosé Antonio Vega Macotela.
