América Latina 1960-2013. Fotos + Textos
PUEBLA  •  Museo Amparo  •  24 May - 29 September 2014

Coproduced with the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain(France), the exhibition hopes to offer a new perspective on Latin American photography from 1960  – the year following the Cuban revolution – to today, focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image.

Bringing together more than seventy artists from eleven different countries, it aims to reveal the great diversity of photographic practices by presenting the work of documentary photographers as well as that of contemporary artists who appropriate the medium in different ways.

The curators were Ángeles Alonso Espinosa, Hervé Chandes, Alexis Fabry, Isabelle Gaudefroy, Ilana Shamoon, and Leanne Sacramone, in collaboration with the Institut des Hautes Études de l´Amérique Latine (IHEAL). Avoiding a chronological scheme, the exhibition is arranged in four thematic segments that allow for a dialogue between artists from different periods and geographic origins:

    To inform / To denounce
    Memory and Identity

It also features Revuelta(s), a film produced by Fondation Cartier pour l´art contemporain and directed by Fredi Casco and Renate Costa. The filmmakers traveled across Latin America interviewing artists and photographers included in América Latina 1960-2013. Fotos + Textos. The more than thirty exclusive interviews are detailed, personal portraits that invite viewers inside the creative universe of each artist, in a documentary of unsurpassed historical value.

The catalogue América Latina 1960-2013. Fotos + Textos, co-published by Museo Amparo and Fondation Cartier pour l´art contemporain, includes texts by Luis Camnitzer, Olivier Compagnon, and Alfonso Morales. The catalog, approximately 400 pages and profusely illustrated with color and black-and-white reproductions, includes artists´ bios, reviews of the work, and a detailed timeline of Latin America´s political history.
