Sergio De La Torre to curate contemporary Mexican photography

Today, Jennifer E. Turpin, USF’s Provost and Vice President for Academic imageAffairs announced that Professor Sergio De La Torre has received two new competitive grants: $16K from the Warhol Foundation and $15K from the San Francisco Arts Commission to curate an exhibition called La Fotografia en Mexico, 1996-2014 (working title). The exhibition will cover photographic practices in Mexico during the last 25 years. A catalog, with a historical survey of photography in Mexico in the context of the transformations in art and photography as a way to give historical meaning to the photographic activity carried out in this period, will accompany the exhibition.

The exhibition will open in San Francisco at SF Camerawork in Spring 2015 and will travel to Arizona State University Art Museum in Summer 2015, Instituto Sonorense de Cultura in Fall 2015, and El Centro de la Imagen Mexico City in Spring 2015.
