Mexican Murals in Times of Crisis
Bruce CampbellISBN: 0816522391;
Book DescriptionTraces the ongoing contributions of mural arts to public life in Mexico to show how postrevolutionary murals have been overshadowed both by the Mexican School and by the exclusionary nature of official public arts. By documenting a rangeof mural practices--from fixed-site murals to banner murals to graffiti--Campbell evaluates the ways in which the practical and aesthetic components of revolutionary Mexican muralism have been appropriated and redeployed within the context of Mexico's ongoing economic and political crisis. Four dozen photographs illustrate the text.
