Mixografia is pleased to present Ichárhuta, our first print collaboration with Abraham Cruzvillegas. This edition will be exhibited as part of Mixografia’s exhibition From Mexico to LA: A Visual History of Graphic Art in conjunction with the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, opening Saturday, September 16th, 2017, 5:00pm – 7:00 pm at Mixografia, 1419 East Adams Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90011.

Ichárhuta is a depiction of 50 Pesos bills. There are two 50 Pesos bills displayed in this print.  One shows a worn bill lying flat in its entirety, and the other has been folded in the shape of a paper boat. Cruzvillegas draws attention to the images printed on currency. These intricate images often make specific references to history and culture but are overlooked for the monetary value that the bill is worth.
