Mexico City in the 1980s and ‘90s

Through photos and personal recollections, Roberto Tejada, a writer and visual scholar on the University of Houston faculty, describes the innovative artists and alternative spaces that emerged in Mexico City’s historic center in the late twentieth century. A member of the artistic and literary community that launched some of Mexico’s most influential contemporary artists, Tejada recollects his experiences with Francis Alÿs and the environment in which he began his artistic practice.
