Black Tears is a ten-year survey of one of Mexico’s leading artists, Betsabeé Romero.
Self-described as a “mechanic artist,” Romero draws on Pre-Columbian iconography, colonial imagery, and popular culture to transform automobiles and their components into contemporary works of art.
The artist’s refashioned cars, carved tires, painted hoods, and incised mirrors explore tensions between local traditions and industrialized societies dominated by speed, mass production, and emigration.
