Opening

April 29th

8 PM

DEATH RATTLE The corpus of installations that is presented at ‘Galerá de Arte Contemporáneo de Xalapa’ is a representative sign of Máximo’s interests, who gets closer to current issues like geopolitics, world economy, globalization and its effects n social development.

This way, he weaves a mat with currency out of circulation, plays with thousands of world-balls produced in Chna, makes history with an infinite collection of plates, and composes a piece (musical) with contrasting images portrayed in several latitudes.

González generates in the spectator a relection about the present situation of our world, warning against the risk of finding it at th threshold of a DEATH RATTLE state, and on this tour he invites us to give it breath.

Tell Me What You Think of Me

curated by Leslie Moody Castro

Categories and definitions are tricky things, especially when they are used to define cultures. While this complex system is often used to identify and generalize cultures outside of the United States, it is also common for North Americans to experience the same type of categorization and definitions abroad. Organized by independent curator Leslie Moody Castro, who divides her time between the United States and Mexico City, Tell Me What You Think of Me explores the humor of these definitions and categorizations placed onto the North American identity. Featuring the works of Donna Conlan, Jonathan Harker, Maximo Gonzalez, Artemio, Ricardo Cuevas, and Emilio Chapela, this exhibition looks at culture, stereotypes, and cultural classification with a lens of humor and irony, inviting the viewer to laugh while rethinking identity.

Tell Me What You Think of Me has been curated specifically for The University Galleries at Texas State University in support of this year’s Common Experience topic, Exploring Democracy’s Promise: From Segregation to Integration. It seeks to pull back the lens on the topic of integration to open a dialog on diversity and culture within a broader global context by looking at the larger stereotypes of culture from the Latin American perspective, projected onto the United States identity.

Máximo González winner at ArtPrize

With the artwork “Tengo Hambre” (I’m Hungry) presented at the exhibitions of “Kendall College of Art and Design” of Ferris State University, Máximo González won the first place in the Three-Dimensional category by the vote of the jury in the artistic contest ArtPrize 2014.

González took part in ArtPrize through an invitation of a curator of the art school of Kendall College, who selected the artwork of 200 rices with the words “Tengo Hambre” to contest.

The piece “Tengo Hambre” looks for becoming aware of the hunger for peace, the hunger for education and the hunger for justice that we have, the artwork represents us, it is our encapsulated shout, invisible, but that is felt, but that each time is more powerful”.

As well as Grand Rapids city, Michigan, the artwork “Tengo Hambre” has been exhibited in: Los Angeles, California, Valencia, Spain; El Paso Texas; Buenos Aires, Argentina y Sao Paulo, Brasil.
