9781403961013: New Tendencies in Mexican Art: The 1990's (New Directions in Latino American Cultures)

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.

Review:

'An immensely engaging book that combines innovative art criticism with the recent social and cultural history of Mexico...not only informative but path-breaking.' - Jean Franco, Emeritus, Columbia University

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Hardcover. 192 pages. 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 Rossells photographs of Mexican millionaires to Teresa Margolless manipulations of human remains, from Santiago Sierras controversial work with human subjects to Vicente Razos creation of a Salinas museum. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781403961013
