Resumen del Libro:
Mexico City has emerged as a thriving center of contemporary art. Escultura Social: A New Generation of Art from Mexico City features recent work by a group of artists whose influence has already extended far beyond Mexico and focuses on how they have contributed to an international dialogue through their use of nontraditional materials, new media, and critical perspectives. This book takes Joseph Beuyss idea of social sculpture, or escultura social, as a multivalent reference point for understanding how these socially engaged works promote a demystified and democratic concept of art-making. Featuring the work of twenty artists, this bilingual volume includes several artists writings by Stefan Bruggemann and Mario Garcia Torres, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Yoshua Okon, and Pedro Reyes – about artist-run exhibition spaces. Critical essays on the contemporary Mexican scene and relevance of Beuyss ideas are accompanied by illustrated texts on each artist in this unique and important book.
