PAST: ART: "Possible Worlds" Mexican Photography and Fiction in Contemporary Art at the Art Museum of the Americas Now- SUN, August 28th, Free

Possible Worlds: Mexican Photography and Fiction in Contemporary Art
On view July 7th - August 28th

Contemporary photography from Mexico. Exhibition curated by art historian Marisol Argüelles, who places nine photographers into five distinct but interwoven groups; Fiction and Literature, Science Fiction, Apocalypse, The Ordinary World, and Ricardo Alzati. The artists of Possible Worlds are part of a new generation of photographers that breaks away from the tra­dition of photojournalism, archetypes and traditional models. Influenced by film, literature, fantasy, science fiction, electronic music, they delve into alternative worlds as conceived by the human mind." Possible Worlds includes work by: Mauricio Alejo, Alex Dorfsman, Kenia Nárez, Ricardo Alzati, Daniela Edburg, Fernando Montiel, Katya Braylovsky, Rubén Gutiérrez and Demián Siqueiros.
