SFMOMA Photography in Mexico
Sonoma County Museum
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) holds one of the world’s most distinguished collections of photography from Mexico. Featuring approximately 65 of 100 photographs, this exhibition reveals a distinctively rich and diverse tradition of photography in Mexico. The show begins with works from the medium's first artistic flowering in the wake of the Mexican Revolution (1910–20) and goes on to explore the explosion of the illustrated press at midcentury; the documentary investigations of cultural traditions and urban politics that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s; and more recent considerations of urban life and globalization. Photography in Mexico includes work by Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Lola Álvarez Bravo, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Manuel Carrillo, Graciela Iturbide, Elsa Medina, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, and Mariana Yampolsky, among others.
This presentation is part of an unprecedented statewide tour of works from SFMOMA’s renowned photography collection to communities throughout California while its building is closed for expansion from the summer of 2013 through early 2016.
