Luis De Jesus Los Angeles is very pleased to announce HUGO CROSTHWAITE: TIJUAS! (Death March, Tijuana Bibles and Other Legends), on view from November 9 through December 21, 2019. This will be the artist's fourth solo exhibition with the Gallery.

Hugo Crosthwaite has spent much of his adult life working on both sides of the U.S. and Mexico border, observing and documenting the extraordinary ebb and flow of humanity that makes this region one of the most existentially dynamic places on the North American continent. In TIJUAS!, Crosthwaite will present selections from several bodies of work that continue his exploration of this ever-evolving culture, among them the "Tijuana Bibles", a new series of animated videos and books, recent graphite-and-ink on canvas and panel paintings, new "Tijuanerias" ink drawings, and "Death March", a phenomenal 25-foot drawing mural that was commissioned for Morbid Curiosity: The Richard Harris Collection at the Chicago Cultural Center. This will be the first time this work will be presented since 2011.
