good article on Mexico City art scene

this is a pretty good overview, though i suspect the problems are bigger, deeper and more complicated. The one thing not mentioned is that Mexico City has a public, New York does not. Thus the DF has endless examples of public art and grass-roots attempts at public art and also, the sense of "public" stands in for a lot that otherwise needs to be fulfilled with art. That is to say that a lot of art is un-necessary here because the city itself has a lot of what art is supposed to have.

Anyway, it is a pretty informative article.
