dis/appear brings together five of Mexico's most diverse street artists to showcase the range of distinct voices coming out of one of today's most exciting countries for urban art. Responding to the current political and social situation affecting people living in Mexico, the artists explore a range of themes from the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala in 2014 to the ongoing loss of local traditions, customs and identity in the face of increasing globalisation. Many of the works reflect on the artists' personal responses to 'necro-politica' – the politics of death in Mexico.
Coinciding with the 2015 Year of Mexico in the UK, the exhibition will act as a point of artistic exchange and dialogue between Mexican artists and the London street art community, showcasing emerging talents in a unique collaboration. Employing a wide range of techniques and styles, including woodcut, painting, etching, heliographics and photography, the works in dis/appear reflect the changing landscape of contemporary Mexico.
The pop-up exhibition will run from 4-8 November.
