Mexico City’s Yautepec Gallery is excited to announce the concluding half of its cross-border gallery swap with Brooklyn’s Live With Animals Gallery, building on the success of their initial Mexico City collaboration in August that featured artists from Live With Animals and Secret Project Robot.

On Friday, December 11th, Yautepec and Live With Animals will inaugurate a show entitled Asesinos — a provocative (and often disturbing) exploration of violence from several uniquely Mexican perspectives. Featuring the artists Artemio, Ruben Gutierrez, Ximena Labra, Mark Powell, Joaquin Segura, and Marion Sosa, Asesinos is an attempt to frame the complex and pervasive nature of violence within a contemporary Mexican society that appears to be increasingly defined by it.

From the systemic to the intimate, Asesinos presents violence in Mexico in a manner that is equally magnifying glass and mirror, a combination meant to compel a US audience to rethink its own distance and insulation from the trouble brewing down South.
