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

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

Armory Center for the Arts cordially invites you and your guests to attend the opening reception of our fall exhibition 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.
