Why is the art scene in Mexico so hot right now? What is it about the place that allows artists such freedom and bravery? Much research and exchange has been taking place between Canadian and Mexican artists and organizations (mostly in Mexico) that we thought it’s time to bring this magic up north and share it with our community.
This extensive exhibition brings a number of Mexican artists together with Mexican-Canadian and Canadian artists into a dense exhibition which is formatted to resemble a chaotic market scene. Some aspects of the exhibition are treated formally, while others incorporate a talismanic approach to collections of objects.
