The first video survey of Mexico City-based artist Miguel Angel Rios, Landlocked follows Rios’s remarkable journey into a unique artistic practice that addresses issues of power, apathy and violence through his innovative use of social and political narratives and original production technique. The exhibition included four never-before-seen works commissioned by the museum.
This exhibition was supported by the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation. Landlocked is part of the Contact Zones series of exhibitions at the ASU Art Museum that focuses on contemporary migration and its intricate uncertainties within border culture, destiny and contested histories. The series includes new commission-based video installations, public engaged programs, guest-curated exhibitions and artist-initiated projects.
The catalog includes essays by Carlos Amorales, Cristóbal Lehyt, Paulo Herkenhoff, Julio César Morales, Javier Téllez and Sergio Vega, with a foreword by Gordon Knox.
