Thu 4/2 - Sat 5/9

Existe lo que Tiene Nombre: Contemporary Photography in Mexico, an exhibition guest-curated by Sergio de la Torre and Javier Ramírez Limón, features the diverse work of 22 contemporary Mexican photographers, both emerging and established.

Addressing the question of how photos influence our understanding of reality, photographers in this exhibition explore the central issue surrounding photographic representation of the subject.

IN REFERENCE TO: Mexican Women of San Francisco
Digital Mural by Alejandra Regalado

In honor of the work resulting from Alejandra Regalado’s 2014 Artist-In-Residency Project, In Reference To, Galería de la Raza presents the latest digital mural, which features photos from her work in San Francisco. The series of photos taken during Regalado’s time in in the city represents one part of a six-part series, from six different cities, culminating in the portraits of 500 Mexican immigrant women as well as an accompanying 500 images of singular objects selected by each woman as a reminder of her life left behind in Mexico. In Reference To explores the experience of Mexican female immigrants across America and investigates issues of cultural identity and femininity.
