About this title

Synopsis:

Wall painting has a distinguished history in Mexican visual culture, with muralists like Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros and Rufino Tamayo using public and private walls to render their largely political artistic visions. Mexican Wall Painting identifies and explores another crucial role that walls serve in Mexico: advertising concerts by contemporary folk bands. These bardas de baile first appeared in the 1960s, responding to the increased popularity of contemporary Mexican folk music and this trend continues today with concerts advertised on walls throughout Mexico.

Review:

"This is a wonderful book! It not only documents one of the great undocumented Mexican folk arts, but takes readers inside the world of the artists. I'm tempted to say the photographs are powerful enough to tell the story by themselves." Elijah Wald, author of Narcocorrido and Escaping the Delta

" A chronicle of cultural vitality and raw design that, at least north of the border, is little known." Steven Heller
