The decade of the 1990s was one of the most turbulent periods in recent Mexican history marked by political assassinations, the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas, the signing of NAFTA, a catastrophic economic crisis, and the defeat of the PRI after seventy years of one-party rule. How did art respond to these events? To answer this question, Gallo examines some of the most radical artistic experiments produced in this period, from Daniela Rossell’s photographs of Mexican millionaires to Teresa Margolles’s manipulations of human remains, from Santiago Sierra’s controversial work with human subjects to Vicente Razo’s creation of a Salinas museum.

About the Author:

Ruben Gallo is Assistant Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures at Princeton University, where he teaches courses on media, modernity, and the avant-garde in Mexico.

Review:

"'New Tendencies in Mexican Art: The l990s' is an immensely engaging book that combines innovative art criticism with the recent social and cultural history of Mexico. Avoiding conventional categories of art criticism, Gallo examines a dazzling array of art works through the prisms of 'orientalism,' 'voyeurism,' 'radiophonism,' 'urbanism,' and 'institutionalism.' Written in an entertaining style, 'New Tendencies' is not only informative but path-breaking." --Jean Franco, Emeritus, Columbia University

"A subtle, lively and generous account of Mexico seen through the eyes of its artistic vanguard. The ode to radio, radio-listeners and Mexico City traffic alone would be worth the price of admission."--Alma Guillermoprieto

"For Ruben Gallo, a brilliant Mexican intellectual, the most natural (and necessary) approach is to incorporate into his essays equal doses of cultural criticism, media studies, literary analysis, and the certitude that one must constantly transform the canon. This book is a
demonstration of his reading methods."--Carlos Monsiváis, cultural critic and author of Mexican Postcards

Book Description Palgrave USA, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. 2004 ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Since the 1980s there has been considerable interest in Mexico and its art, as one can see from the sheer number of exhibitions, catalogues, and articles devoted to the subject. Despite this interest, there are few books devoted to contemporary Mexican art. New Tendencies in Mexican Art is the first book-length study devoted to a generation of Mexican artists who have had enormous international success. It focuses on several tendencies Gallo has identified as prominent themes in the work of these artists including orientalism, perversion, and a fascination with urban culture.
