I am very excited to announce my participation in ExpoChicago 2014 as co-curator for the National Museum of Mexican Art. I have been appointed by the NMMA to curate alongside Margaret Failoni their Special Exhibition at Booth 118 titled “Border Crossings: Mexico/USA.”
EXPO CHICAGO PRESS RELEASE
The National Museum of Mexican Art, the most prominent Latino arts organization in the country, will present “Border Crossings: Mexico/USA” at EXPO CHICAGO 2014. Organized by Director of the National Museum of Mexican Art Carlos Tortolero and Mexico-based independent curator Margaret Failoni, the special exhibition brings together a group of young emerging artists from both sides of the border comparing the dichotomy between these two worlds as seen from each side. The selected artists interrogate how, if at all, the national roots of the artists influences the art. Curated by Failoni, selecting artists from Mexico, and Sergio Gomez, selecting artists from Chicago, “Border Crossings” will include work by Alfonso Piloto Nieves, Elsa Muñoz, Salvador Jimenez Flores, Ruben Aguirre, Luis Sahagun, Victoria Martinez, Daniela Edburg, Alejandra Mendoza, Francisco (Paco) Esnayra, Leonardo Diaz, Jayden Romay and Daniela Libertad.
