Fotografía y Nuevos Medios: Selections from the Permanent Collection

Amassed over the last 35 years, Mexic-Arte Museum’s upcoming exhibition, Fotografía y Nuevos Medios: Selections from the Permanent Collection, explores the plurality of resistance, highlighting varied lineages of Latinx and Latin American resistance. 

Desert Triangle Print Carpeta

The Desert Triangle Print Carpeta exhibition will feature the work of 30 printmakers from the Southwest. Organized by KRRRL (Karl Whitaker), the prints in this carpeta, or print portfolio, were produced in 14 different studios across the “desert triangle” region in 2015 with the objective to bring exposure to artists living and working in “the hottest, driest stretch of flyover country,” as Whitaker notes.

Music by DJ Chorizo Funk
