DESCRIPTION

This group exhibition, named after Carlos Monsivais' book of the same title, takes the work of Mexico's renowned photojournalist, Enrique Metinides, as a departure point and complements it with the work of contemporary artists who also capture the human experience in the metropolis. The photographs and video-based works provide a glimpse into the emotions and events that run rampant in cities where massive concentrations of people congregate, including notions of isolation and chaos. Guest curator Monica Espinel organized Rituals of Chaos.

Featured artists include: Enrique Metinides, Sophie Calle, Robin Graubard, Gordon Matta-Clark, Rick Liss, Jamel Shabazz, and others.
