Michael Menchaca: Dioses Nuevos
January 25, 2019 — June 30, 2019
San Antonio-based artist Michael Menchaca connects his contemporary art practice with the Chrysler Museum’s ancient Mesoamerican collection in Dioses Nuevos. On view, January 25–June 30, 2019, the dynamic, new, mixed-media installation was created specifically for The Box project space.
Menchaca’s work combines video game imagery; vibrant, graphic wall text; and sculpture with references and iconography from Mesoamerican historical codices (pictorial history books). He often creates twenty-first-century deities, based on those from the ancient world, engaged with current sociopolitical issues, such as immigration and political bias that impacts Latinx, Chicanx, and Mexican immigrant communities.
