Art & Economies: el Changarrito and alternative economy

Artist Maximo Gonzalez – el Changarrito contributing to alternative economies

Maximo Gonzalez’ Changarrito or street cart cum art gallery space takes the place of a formal gallery venue and places it in the art market however its on the street for public consumption.  It welcomes artists products, poetry and other items to be sold, of which artists profit 100%.  The artist acts as street vendor and emulates vendor stalls which can be found around Mexico City. 
 This year 2011, he took his cart to the Venice Biennial.  Through this process he is contributing to the informal economies that exist all around us.  To find out more visit: Changarrito.
