In recent years there has been a steady stream of contemporary art being produced outside of Mexico City, in cultural centers like Oaxaca. Renowned as the birthplace of artist Francisco Toledo it has become the home for an extensive network of galleries, cultural centers and artisanal crafts. Iconográfika Oaxaca takes a look at a new generation of artists who are breaking from this tradition by blending their indigenous roots with iconic imagery from contemporary life. Artists include Pablo Cotama, Demián Flores, Claudia Lopez Terroso, Baldomero Robles and Emilia Sandoval. This exhibition is part of a multi-site collaboration with the New Mexico State University Museum of Art and the El Paso Museum of Art who will present complementary exhibitions and programming on the cities of Guadalajara (Jan-March 2019) and Monterrey (Fall 2019) respectively.
