Edgardo Aragón

Mexican artist Edgardo Aragón reveals the everyday realities of Mexico’s rural landscapes, realities that are often much darker and more frightening than those idealized by Western films and traditional Mexican painting. Often documenting performance and sculptural interventions, Aragón’s images are politically charged, illuminating the corruption, exploitation, and abandonment that pervades his lived experience. In addition to photography, Aragón also works with video, often incorporating folksongs, oral histories, and personal narratives.

Aragón's solo exhibitions include Tabacalera Promoción del Arte in Madrid, Laurel Gitlen Gallery in New York, LAXART in Los Angeles, and Hamidrasha Gallery in Tel-Aviv. Group exhibitions include the Jewish Museum in New York, New York’s MoMA PS1, and III Moscow International Biennial for Young Art.
