Mexico Shakes Up the Art World
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
