LA><ART working in collaboration with the Luckman Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Mexican artist Edgardo Aragon in the United States. This exhibition also marks the debut of La trampa/The Trap, the third and final work in Aragon’s first major video trilogy.
This exhibition features a trilogy of video works by Mexican artist Edgardo Aragón that explores the growing violence and narcotraffiicking in Mexico’s rural regions. From semi-habited locales to abandoned local roads, Aragón poignantly portrays the complicated conditions of the country without sensationalizing its charged context. This is the first solo exhibition for Aragón in Los Angeles; it features the works Efectos de Familia (2008-2010), Matamoros (2010), and La Trampa (2011).
This exhibition is organized by Cesar Garcia, Senior Curator of LAXART, and curated by Ruth Estevez.
