Today’s show: “Postcards from America” is on view at Celaya Brothers Gallery in Mexico City through Saturday, October 28. The group exhibition, curated by Joseph Imhauser and Victor Celaya, takes its name from a 1989 text written by David Wojnarowicz and brings together “works [that] bear witness to heinous, senseless acts of institutionalized violence and racism in a cross-toxic mess that as of yet has no end in sight,” according to an announcement. Participating artists include Lee Lozano, Josh Reames, Nina Chanel Abney, Dave Mckenzie, Mathew Zefeldt, and Sofi Brazzeal.
