JULIO CESAR MORALES
Part of a series called ‘Undocumented Interventions’ by Julio Cesar Morales. I saw this in a Hispanic art exhibit in Phoenix around 2009 which would turn out, without exaggeration, the BEST art exhibit I have ever been to. I particularly like this series in that it exhibits an extremely emotional and horrifying event in a very clinical and diagrammatic way; line drawings with watercolor. Almost like an IKEA diagram.
Accompanying the watercolors there was a video showing an abstract transect riding around Tijuana implying at the thriving industry of modifying vehicles and appliances to smuggle immigrants to the US.
