Texas Artist Chronicles Art of the Iberian Peninsula

by Glasstire February 9, 2016

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you have no doubt seen on social media and art publications countless posts from artists, gallerists, and curators who’ve flocked to Mexico City’s third-annual Material Art Fair. Exploring another country’s art scene can be difficult without some point of access, and someone “in the know” can help to that end.

So on that note: Artist, teacher, and past Glasstire contributor Lauren Moya Ford has been living abroad and created a blog, Vigo Expo, chronicling her experiences with contemporary art in Galicia, Spain, and Portugal. Ford writes reviews, profiles, and photoessays that give a glimpse into the Iberian Peninsula’s art scene—shedding light on work that would otherwise be off the beaten path. Go here to check it out. As for your introduction to Mexico’s scene, an increasing number of US-based critics are paying close attention to the thriving contemporary scene next door.
