Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico
Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico / Más abajo que el
underground: arte renegado y acción en el México de los noventa is a group exhibition of
artists and collectives that examine social spaces and political actions generated by alternative
art practices, beyond the now-familiar independents toward diverse artist initiatives in Mexico
City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey in the 1990s. Practices include ad hoc street performances and
interventions, clubs, collaboratively produced ‘zines, archives and collections, pirate radio
programs, and more. The project references pronounced divisions of class, race, and gender, with
art objects themselves the tangible outcomes of many different conditions of creating, living, and
experimenting within the same place. Below the Underground also includes a publication and an
interactive digital archive. The project is the culmination of a year of related
programs entitled #BetweenDownBelow/#EntreAbajoMasAbajo.
