Mexican Photography: Modernism to Contemporary Practices: 1920s-2000
A lecture by Edward Sullivan (Professor of Art History. Institute of Fine Arts,New York University)
Mexican photography from the post-revolutionary era (1920s) to the 2000s was a series of dynamic developments, from war imagery to Surrealist-inspired experiments, contemporary practices and social critique. This lecture will survey a broad selection of key participants in this complex story, from Lola Alvarez Bravo, Edward Weston and Tina Modotti in the early stages of the twentieth century to such figures as Daniela Rosell who, in the early 2000's, created the well known "Ricas y Famosas" series that sharply satirized the Mexican super-rich.
