Title: Grassroot Narratives in Oaxaca and Ciudad Juarez
Author: Graham de la Rosa, Michael
Subject: Grassroots ASARO (Asamblea de Artists Revolucionarios de Oaxaca) Block Prints, Stencils, Mexico
Abstract: This exhibit addresses Mexican history two hundred years after Father Hidalgo proclaimed death to bad government and initiated Mexico's Independence. University Libraries presents its newly acquired ASARO (Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca) collection alongside UNM PhD student and photographer, Michael Wolff's photo narrative Sonidos de la Frontera. This exhibition in the Herzstein Latin American Reading Room Gallery on Zimmerman's second floor includes prints and spray paint stencils by the Oaxacan artists collective ASARO, known for it's association with the Popular Assembly of Oaxacan Peoples (APPO). The ASARO works and Wolff's reflections on current events in violence stricken Juarez address 21rst century Mexican military and police occupations on Mexico's Northern and Southern fronts. These stories reflect daily lives and grassroots movements at opposing ends of the Mexican Republic. More importantly, they represent Mexican peoples unifying for peace and sovereignty.
