Past Changarrito/Changarreando

About Changarrito Program:

Changarrito is an art vending cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative to the official gallery selection presented by the Mexican cultural authorities. The word “changarreando”, is a verb form that comes from the noun “changarro,” slang originating in Mexico City for “a small retail store.” The suffix “-ando” adds significant meaning to the word but can be summarized here as indicating the act or action of hanging out at a “changarro” with the featured artist.

Faithful to their original, informal spirit, Changarritos exist throughout the world, evolving as forums for the sale of original artwork to the general public, presentation of public programs, special curatorial projects, individual and collective exhibitions. Changarreando takes this a step further to connect with people through social media, generate interaction with art, and embrace the digital era with our existing programs!

True to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s mission, the Changarrito and Changarreando are dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary Latinx and Latin American art. Normally, artists have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as representative for the Museum during various Austin festivals). Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale. For each Changarrito/Changarreando artist, the Museum acquires a work of art for its permanent collection.

Politics, social issues and pop culture are all present throughout his work. Luis Angulo specializes in large scale public artworks, which involve sculpture, murals and art installations. His work often involves incorporating various communities in his work to create a deep connection to the history, culture and people.

Changarrito with Francisco Godoy

May. 13, 2017 – May. 21, 2017

Francisco Godoy (b. 1979) is an artist and pediatrician, originally from Guatemala. His current body of work is inspired by his medical knowledge, as he explores the shape of the human heart. He uses a variety of mediums including paintings, graphics, collages, and art-objects, through which he hopes to evoke different emotions and experiences from his life. Godoy states, “As a doctor, I’ve had the opportunity to help other humans to heal their physical side. Nowadays, I consider art as a complement in my life that allows me to help humans to heal and nourish their souls.”
