Sinopsis: This handsome book and the exhibit from which it arose began in 1990 as a political project--to raise national and international concsciousness to prevent the construction of a hydroelectric dam that would forcibly relocate 40,000 indegenous residents of the Balsas River basin in central Guerrrero, Mexico. It succeeded--both in stopping the dam, and in resurrecting and developing an art medium: amate.

Since precolumbian times amate has been made from tree bark, which is crushed, pounded into flat sheets, and dried. The contemporary artists in this collection use bright color and subtle texture to create artworks that have now become highly collectible.

Background to this artistic and political reawakening is presented through written and visual essays on the archaeology, history, and ethnography of the region. The book closes with a selection of twenty contemporary photographs that capture the multifaceted world of the Balsas River basin villages. The entire text is presented in both Spanish and English.

Reseña del editor: Published by the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum, Chicago, and Casa de las Imagenes, S.A. de c.v., Mexico City.
