About Changarrito:
Changarrito is a pop-up art cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative to official gallery selections in Mexico. Faithful to their original, informal spirit, Changarritos exist throughout the world, evolving as forums for the exhibition and sale of original artwork to the general public, presentation of public programs, special curatorial projects, individual and collective exhibitions.
