About the Book
The 3rd SUR:biennial took place at four venues in Los Angeles: Torrance Art Museum, Manhattan Beach Art Center, Rio Hondo College Art Gallery, and Cerritos College Art Gallery. The biennial showcased recent works of local and international artists who have been influenced by the cultures and artistic traditions of Mexico and Central and South America. Unlike many recent exhibitions of Latino/a, Mexican, Mexican-American, or Chicano/a art, the SUR:biennial sought to explore notions of globalization and exchange that take place in the ambiguous geographical, cultural, and artistic borderlands between Los Angeles and “the South,” regardless of the artist’s nationality. Artist participants in the 3rd SUR:biennial were Ismael de Anda III, Juliane Backmann, Juan Bastardo, Guillermo Bert, Daniela Campins, Carolyn Castano, Anibal Catalan, Beatriz Cortez, CUBO (Jennifer Donovan, Gabriela Torres Olivares, Nina Waisman, Flora Wiegmann, and PD programming by Marius Schebella), Carribean Fragoza, Ed Gomez, Romeo Guzmán, Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia, Daniel Lara, Patrick Martinez, Rebeca Méndez, Gerardo Monterrubio, El Nopal Press, Jimena Sarno, Francesco Siqueiros, and Eloy Torrez.
