Cande Aguilar: barrioPOP curated by Ric Michel Fine Art and 81 Leonard Gallery, held at 81 Leonard Gallery, NYC Sept. 5 – 28, 2019. Catalogue Available.
What is barrioPOP?
An amalgam of street art and pop culture filtered through a distinctly south Texas, Mexican-American lens.
Hand painted signs, Conjunto music, cartoon icons, museum masters and border politics all find their way into the mix.
And emerge reconfigured in something new, fresh and provocative.
