In the annex gallery, the Mexic-Arte Museum presents new works by Miguel Aragón. Originally from Ciudad Juarez Mexico, Aragón is an MFA graduate student at The University of Texas at Austin specializing in traditional, technological, and experimental printmaking. Aragón’s current series explores images from Mexican newspaper clippings and photographs chronicling the ongoing drug-related violence. Using a conceptual framework of reduction, trauma, and erasure Aragón parallels his artistic process with the experiences of those directly affected by the ongoing violence.
