Status Report presents work by contemporary Mexican and Latino artists highlights the varied ways that artists have examined the themes of immigration, the U. S./Mexican border, and work. Exhibiting artists – based in Brooklyn and greater New York, the West Coast, and Mexico – include Margarita Cabrera, Sergio de la Torre and Vicky Funari, Christina Fernandez, Coco Fusco, Erika Harrsch, Pedro Lasch, Delilah Montoya, and Dulce Pinzón.
Status Report is the first exhibition in New York to consider the issue of Mexican immigration, the border, and work through the lens of contemporary, urban artists. Its organization has been inspired by the enormous growth in Mexican population in New York – particularly in Brooklyn – in the last decade. In fact, the city’s Mexican population has roughly sextupled since 1990.
