Desmothernismo surveys the work that Rubn Ortiz Torres has produced over the last seven years as he's commuted back and forth across the U.S./Mexican border, using diverse media to explore the linguistic, aesthetic, and social collisions of art and culture. This exhibition catalogue includes the full range of his wildly eclectic work, including paintings/pictograms combining modern art symbols with ethnic stereotypes; photographs of scenes from both sides of the border that mix allegory with documentation; customized baseball caps that make a twisted fashion statement about the relationship between aesthetics, history, mass media, politics, sports, and community; and his acclaimed recent installation Alien Toyz.
