Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico

Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico

This exhibition looks at social spaces and political actions created by alternative art practices, beyond the now-familiar independents toward diverse artist initiatives – from newly acquired brick and mortar spaces, to ad hoc street performances and interventions, living room galleries, clubs, collaboratively produced ‘zines, archives and collections, pirate radio programs, and more. The project also references pronounced divisions of class, race, and gender, with art objects themselves the tangible outcomes of many different conditions of creating, living, and experimenting within the same place.

The project is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latinx art in dialogue with Los Angeles.
