The MONTARlaBestia (Riding the Beast) art exhibition by the Colectivo de Artistas Contra la Discriminación (Artist Collective Against Discrimination) was on display at the UC Berkeley Center for Latin American Studies from Tuesday, July 11 until September 29, 2017.

This moving and visually stunning exhibition responds to “La Bestia” – a train that carries up to half a million Central American migrants a year on a dangerous journey across Mexico towards the United States. Through art and poetry, the Colectivo de Artistas contra la Discriminación explores the meaning of “riding the beast.”

MONTARlabestia is underwritten by Richard A. Levy, MD, and Andrew Kluger, in collaboration with the Mexican Museum, the Mexican Consulate General of San Francisco, and the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation.
