About the Changarrito Project

Selections from the Collection 2015-2016 highlights works of art acquired during the Changarrito Residencies at the Mexic-Arte Museum. “Changarrito” is an art vending cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative to the official gallery selections presented by the Mexican cultural authorities. Since 2012, the curators from the Mexic-Arte Museum have selected over 45 artists to participate in the Changarrito Project. Artists display their artworks on the Changarrito cart outside the museum; everything for sale is accessible in price, and one hundred percent of the sales proceeds go to the artists. True to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s mission, the Changarrito is dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary Latina/o and Latin American art. The exhibition will feature works collected by the museum during these residencies. The art on display ranges from toys, serigraphs, paintings, sketches, zines and other portable works of art.
