Camiones de México | Mingei International Museum

Embark on a journey with La Frontera papier-mâché artist Manuel Urueta and photographer/filmmaker Celina Galicia of Xingaderas, as we delve into the significance of "Camiones de México," or the buses of Mexico. Frequently repurposed from U.S. school buses, these adapted vehicles play a crucial role in the public transportation systems of many border cities in Mexico. Stop by to contribute to the collaborative customization of a model bus, gain insights into Xingaderas' artistic process, and engage with the exhibition. Discover how identity takes on a dual nature for many, mirroring the dual purpose of these transformed buses in the cultural landscape.
