Artistic Processes in Mexico 1952-1967
Edited by Rita Elder, Álvaro Vázquez Mantecón.
Proposing new perspectives on artistic production in Mexico between 1952 and 1967, Defying Stability looks at the diversity of the country’s postwar visual arts against the backdrop of its broader social and economic shifts. This period saw the formation of new educational institutions, the emergence of alternative cultural spaces and a cross-pollination with European, North American and Latin American avant-gardes. Among the artists represented here are Feliciano Béjar, Ursula Bernath, Luis Buńuel, Lilia Carrillo, José Luis Cuevas, Felipe Ehrenberg, Manuel Felguérez, Rubén Gámez, Gunther Gerzso, Alberto Gironella, Mathias Goeritz, Juan José Gurrola, Juan Guzmán, Kati Horna, Alexandro Jodorowsky, Fernando Luna, Bordes Mangel, Diego Matthai, Rodrigo Moya, Juan O’Gorman, Wolfgang Paalen, Lorraine Pinto, Fernando García Ponce, Armando Salas Portugal, Vicente Rojo and Eduardo Terrazas.
