Colectivo Sublevarte Retrospective Favorite 



Nov 10 2012


Mexico City

Sublevarte, a Collective of Mexican artists, was born out of the ENAP (National School of Fine Arts) of UNAM (the National Autonomous University of Mexico), during the student strike of 1999-2000, the longest student strike in history. With more than 12 years of experience, Sublevarte has played an active role hosting workshops, participating in exhibitions, interventions, performance art, and talks, all while building the professional development of each member of the collective. Some of the recurrent themes for the Sublevarte Collective include: politics and society, immigration, access to goods, culture and social justice. Recently Sublevarte held a retrospective exhibition at the Interference Archive, in Brooklyn, NY. 

Sublevarte Colectivo believes that the graphic arts should be a vehicle of expression and communication in society, and that these days the power of the visual image is stronger than words. They have brought this vision to their work with the Zapatistas, the flower sellers of Atenco, the striking teachers of Oaxaca, and dozens of other social struggles in Mexico.
