In the last five years conceptual artist Camilo Ontiveros (Mexico\, b. 1 978) has been exploring social issues\, especially those related to immigra tion\, the border between Mexico and the United States and notions of value . For his latest project\, Camilo Ontiveros: In the Ring\, the artis t focuses on the intersections between the Mexican and the Filipino culture s\, through his research on boxing. In recent years the rising career of bo xer Manny Pacquiao has brought to the attention of the public several signi ficant fights\, generally held in the U.S.\, between Filipino and Mexican b oxers. In addition\, these two countries share a rather unknown history tha t dates back to the 16th century and expanded for more than three hundred y ears under the rule of Spain. The exhibition\, composed by a boxing ring\, footage and photographs of boxing trainings and fights in Mexico\, the Phil ippines and the U.S.\, confronts the viewer with a visual clash of two post colonial societies.

The boxing ring will constitute a physical and conceptual platform for debates that will take place throughout the duration of the exhibition.
