DESCRIPTION:
The USC Fisher Museum of Art in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate of Los Angeles and Art Division, a non-profit organization dedicated to training and supporting underserved young adults who are committed to studying visual arts, will present MONTARlaBestia. The exhibition is an interdisciplinary exploration that responds to “La Bestia”—a train that carries as many as half a million Central American immigrants annually to the United States. The project was created by artists Demián Flores and Marco Barrera Bassols and will include art and poetry by Art Division students and the artist collective El Colectivo Artistas Contra la Discriminación.

Exhibition creator Demián Flores was first exhibited by the Fisher Museum in 2006 and has works in the museum’s permanent collection, as well as in the collections of El Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) and London Print Studio, among others. Marco Barrera Bassols is one of Mexico’s most esteemed independent curators. Bassols has worked on important international art projects, including with MoMA in New York.
