While the political divide between Mexico and the US has been deepening, the cross-cultural exchanges between the two countries have become richer or at least more prominent. This is particularly true of California, whose history is entwined with Mexico’s, with a Latino population hovering around 39 percent.
This Friday through Sunday, Los Angeles’s Fowler Museum is hosting the Radical Publishing Weekend, which will showcase Mexico’s independent, politically minded publishing scene alongside Southern California’s own (and beyond). Highlights include the LA-based Tiny Splendor and Hesse Press and Mexico City publishing houses La Casa de El Hijo del Ahuizote and Gato Negro Ediciones. The latter is displaying its signature Risograph books in a solo exhibition at the Fowler aptly titled South of No North. For more context on how contemporary radical publishing works in Mexico, there will be a panel discussion with the Gato Negro founder, León Muñoz Santini, and the director of La Casa de El Hijo del Ahuizote, Diego Flores Magón, on Sunday at 1pm.
Over the on the east side of Los Angeles, the Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) is also hosting a few events in conjunction with the Fowler. In celebration of VPAM’s current exhibition, Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology, focused on activist histories in the US and Mexico, the museum will host conversations that revive the memories of 1990s youth and cultural spaces and the influence of radio and newspapers in Chicano organizing.
When: Friday, October 12–Sunday, October 14, 12pm–5pm
Where: Fowler Museum (308 Charles E Young Dr N, Los Angeles) and Vincent Price Art Museum (1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez, Monterey Park)
