Cinco y Cinco / Five & Five Exhibit
The Mexican Museum
Through Nov 6th
Celebrate The Mexican Museum’s 40th anniversary at a special exhibit that recognizes Latino artists. The five artists invited to participate each nominated another artist for inclusion in the exhibit, resulting in diverse viewpoints, approaches, media, eras, and ethnic backgrounds. Guest curator Anthony Torres explores connections, differences, similarities, and visual sensibilities among the different artworks.
The exhibit seeks to express contemporary Latino art as a diffuse and constantly changing creative subject that has evolved beyond geography, ethnic identities, aesthetics, and history to embrace new and unexpected directions and dialogues. This emerging intellectual discourse grew naturally from the social struggles for recognition and equality of the 1960s and 1970s that led to the establishment of The Mexican Museum and other cultural institutions.
These artists, who have gained regional, national, and international acclaim, have been supported by their communities and institutions such as The Mexican Museum and other arts organizations (Mission Cultural Center, Galleria de la Raza, and more).
