ASL Tour: Point/Counterpoint

December 3, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - December 3, 2017 @ 1:00 pm

Join us for a tour of our newest exhibition, Point/Counterpoint: Contemporary Mexican Photography led by a deaf docent in American Sign Language.

About the Exhibition:

At a time when there is considerable interest in issues surrounding the political, economic, and social boundaries between Mexico and the United States, Point/Counterpoint presents nineteen Mexican photographers whose works reflect cultural transformations that are currently underway in their country. These artists explore the intersection between perceived “traditional” Mexican culture and the actuality of contemporary life in Mexico.

Part of the Getty-led Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, Point/Counterpoint will connect the San Diego community to subjects that directly affect them. These images explore the political, economic, and social changes of a country that is tied to the past, yet seeking a new future. The museum will host a series of community conversations bringing together a unique group of expert voices to speak to themes found in the exhibition on November 16, December 14, & January 18.

Featuring works by: Guillermo Arias, Iñaki Bonillas, Andrés Carretero, Ana Casas Broda, José Luís Cuevas, Alex Dorfsman, Federico Gama, Maya Goded, Juan José Herrera, Dr. Lakra, Pablo López Luz, Daniela Edburg, Alejandra Laviada, Teresa Margolles, Patricia Martín, Fernando Montiel Klint, Daniela Rossell, Gerardo Suter, and Yvonne Venegas.
