The Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO)




The Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO) is a contemporary Mexican artists’ collective comprised of young art students and street artists. They employ multiple mediums including wood and linoleum block prints, large-scale graffiti murals, interventionist stencils, and wheat pastes. Public and academic interest in their work (as evidenced in exhibits and recent publications) is proof of their success in “getting up.“

Praise

“The Assembly of Revolutionary Artists of Oaxaca (ASARO) protest and rebel through their art, which follows a tradition established by important Mexican artists of the past including the Mexican Muralists and the Taller de Gráfica Popular. ASARO connects with their artistic and cultural history through a familiar and provocative manner that results in a visual language that is distinctly their own. Getting Up for the People is a significant contribution to the field of graphic arts history, but more than that, it gives light to the vital work of this important artist collective.“
—Theresa Avila, PhD, author of “Laborious Arts: El Taller de Gráfica Popular & the Meaning of Labor in Las Estampas de la Revolución Mexicana“

“This in-depth study of ASARO is timely and necessary for connecting the continuity of traditions embedded in Mexican art, and also for making visual art accessible to everyone.“
—Tey Marianna Nunn, PhD, director and chief curator, Art Museum at the National Hispanic Cultural Center

“In Mexico and other colonized places, it’s not just about getting up; it’s about getting people to tune in and think.“
—Cozca-13, street artist
