Un arte sin tutela: Salón Independiente en México, 1968-1971 is a historical review of one of the most important initiatives that changed artistic practices in Mexico.
The publication offers a detailed reading of the terms and alternatives in which the confrontations of the late 1960s took place, for artists, officials and audiences alike, at a key moment that changed subsequent Mexican art.
The catalogue describes the freedom of creation, self-management, the use of new languages and non-traditional media -such as film or fashion-, the emphasis on the process of collective creation, artistic experimentation and its anti-official and anti-academic stance as the essence of the three editions of the Salón Independiente and the alternative events developed by the group.
