New Tendencies in Mexican Art: The 1990's by R. Gallo

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. New Tendencies in Mexican Art is the first book-length study devoted to a generation of Mexican artists who have had enormous international success. 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.
