Dialogo envisions Mexico as an international contemporary art locale layered with regional histories and longtime global intersections. Presented in conjunction with the Mexico Now festival, this exhibition features Away from You by Silvia Gruner, one of the most recognized artists living in Mexico, and Tijuana-based Julio Orozco's multi-channel video, Love Letters, conceived as an optical intruder and auricular witness to women's personal stories. A more intimate screening area includes single-channel video works by indigenous Mexican media makers selected from the Mexican Media Arts Fellowships program. The schedule is as follows:

On Tuesdays: "Personal politics" (95 minutes)
Works by Rigoberto Perezcano, and Juan Francisco Uriste

On Wednesdays & Thursdays: "Land, Industry, and Politics" (110 minutes)
Works by Cristanto Mazano Avella, Juan Jose Garcia, Guillermo Monteforte, and Mariano Estrada

On Fridays & Saturdays: "Children, Place, Home and History" (102 minutes)

Christina Fregoso


Dialogo is presented as part of Mexico Now, a citywide festival of contemporary Mexican arts and culture, presented at 26 of New York City's leading arts venues in November 2004. Mexico Now is a project of Arts International, the nation's only nonprofit organization solely devoted to international arts exchange. www.mexiconowfestival.org
