From the 16th of January 2016 until the 13th of February 2016, The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts will open it’s doors to the public with the exhibit entitled “Mexicanos al Grito de Guerra: We didn’t cross the borders, the borders crossed us” which poses a bilateral reflection within groups of graphic artists, creators, and activists on both sides of the border between Mexico and U.S.A. Motivated by the daily troubles that are suffered in this region of the American continent (although not exclusive) the sample aims to question both the participating artists and the spectators themselves survival in daily life.
The group of artists simultaneously launched this initiative in San Francisco and Mexico by Talleres Populares 28 de Julio, and Escuela de Cultura Popular Martires del ’68. By stripping away across a historic, economic, geopolitical, cultural journey the plots of the complex network that traps the people and does not allow them to escape the trap of the American way of life in its maximum expression: capitalism.
