Flowers can blossom in the harshest environments, much like the art scene that bloomed in Mexico City after the devastating 1985 earthquake. The ’90s was a time of growing violence, economic disruption and widespread political corruption. It also saw an explosion of contemporary artists rising to explore the social changes influencing modern Mexico. México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990 at The Modern in Fort Worth brings about 60 works in a variety of media by 23 artists working in Central Mexico. The creations track the revival of Mexican art and Mexico City’s rise to international prominence as a center for contemporary art. The exhibit includes works by Artemio, Francis Alÿs, Naomi Rincón-Gallardo and a host of others. The exhibition continues through January 5. The Modern is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except Mondays and holidays. Admission is $10 for adults, $4 for students and seniors. It’s located at 3200 Darnell St.
Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 29. Continues through Jan. 5, 2013
