“El eje del mal” is the inaugural exhibition at Ruberta, a new collaborative exhibition space in Glendale shared by Galería Agustina Ferreyra (Mexico City), Lodos (Mexico City), Proyectos Ultravioleta (Guatemala City), CARNE (Bogota), and BWSMX (Mexico City). Each year, Ruberta will play host to one group exhibition involving all of the participating galleries, followed by five successive two-month residencies, one for each gallery.

Opening Sunday, September 10th, “El eje del mal” will feature works by emerging Latin American artists Radamés “Juni” Figueroa, Adriana Lara, Adriana Martínez, Mariana Murcia, Diego Salvador Ríos, Sangree, and Cristina Tufiño.

Each of the artists involved navigates the complex terrain of Latin America’s colonial legacy and its more contemporary manifestations within a consumerist society. Their tactics are diverse and often borrowed from other disciplines like archaeology, anthropology, and theater, but are tied together by a shared interest in a pop-cultural vernacular.

“El eje del mal” will be on view through October 22nd, 2017, and is part of the Participating Gallery Program of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.
