CELEBRATING THE ART OF MEXICAN PHOTOGRAPHY
THIS SUMMER AT THE FROST ART MUSEUM FIU
Becoming Mexico: The Photographs of Manuel Carrillo
Possible Worlds: Photography and Fiction in Mexican Contemporary Art
The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU celebrates the art of Mexican photography this summer with two exhibitions: Becoming Mexico: The Photographs of Manuel Carrillo and Possible Worlds: Photography and Fiction in Mexican Contemporary Art. The opening reception is free, open to the public on Saturday, July 8, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. (directions to Florida International University).
With Becoming Mexico, the museum traces the deep roots of the genre with the striking photo-journalistic work that captured the country’s national identity featuring more than thirty of Manuel Carrillo’s gelatin silver prints. Carrillo’s photographs serve as a celebration of the human spirit. These photographs are part of the museum’s permanent collection. This exhibition was curated by Klaudio Rodriguez, the museum’s Curator.
