Overview

Since the 1980s there has been considerable interest in Mexico and its art, as one can see from the sheer number of exhibitions, catalogues, and articles devoted to the subject. Despite this interest, there are few books devoted to contemporary Mexican art.

It focuses on several 'tendencies' Gallo has identified as prominent themes in the work of these artists including orientalism, perversion, and a fascination with urban culture.
