Through a selected group of risograph prints and screenprints, Destinos offers a glimpse into the contemporary printmaking scene in Mexico, showcasing prints and zines created and distributed by Mexican studios and shops. The featured artists, with their distinctive styles and techniques, utilize a dynamic mix of printmaking methods to delve into themes of personal and national identity, social justice, and pop culture. The prints not only reflect Mexico’s complex history, but also spark conversations about its ever-evolving social landscape.
Featuring work printed and distributed by Nando Murio / Concordia; Abraham Mascorro Morales / OMG Press; Rock & Amistad Riso Press; Ricos Jugos, Gibrán Turón, S A R A — Sociedad Anónima Reproducción Autogestiva; and Nico Peor.
The exhibition at Pyramid Atlantic is made possible by The Maryland Department of Commerce and the Maryland National Park and Planning Commission, Prince George’s County.

About Edgar Reyes

Edgar Reyes is a multimedia artist based in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. area. Reyes earned his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and has taught at non-profit organizations, schools, and museums. Many of his projects are autobiographical and a reflection of his personal journey as an undocumented youth in the United States. His art practice highlights the beauty of being Mexican American, yet questions his national and cultural traditions. He challenges social norms to express what it means for him to be labeled Latino. His art making is centered around building compassion and understanding regarding the complex history of forced and voluntary resettlement throughout the America.
