Mexican artists featured in ‘Transurbaniac’ exhibition

Mexican artists working on issues of urban space are featured in the exhibition “Transurbaniac: Art emotions and some city trances,” on view at the UCSD University Art Gallery from April 9 through May 15.

Curated by Guillermo Santamarina, chief curator at Mexico City’s MuAC (University Museum of Contemporary Art at the National Autonomous University of Mexico), “Transurbaniac” brings together a number of key works from the museum’s permanent collection along with works selected by the UCSD University Art Gallery.

The exhibition artists are Eduardo Abaroa, Georgina Bringas, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Jose Dávila, Roberto de la Torre, Pedro Friedeberg, Ruben Gutierrez, Jerónimo Hagerman, Enrique Jezik, Gabriel Kuri, Gonzalo Lebrija, Ilán Lieberman, Enrique Metinides, David Miranda, Antonio O’Connell, Edgar Orlaineta, Ricardo Rendón, Jorge Reyes, Tercerunquinto and Pablo Vargas Lugo.

From the large site-specific installation of Jose Dávila to David Miranda’s flier titled “Legal Trades,” the show focuses on the specific circumstances of contemporary art in Mexico and raises questions that are relevant for artists working in urban contexts everywhere today.
