On view until March 15, 2020. These Mexican artists are two of the most celebrated photographers in Latin America. Through the medium of photography, both Iturbide and Álvarez Bravo dynamically examine their own country and the myriad of indigenous cultures within it. Drawn from MCASD’s permanent collection, the exhibition explores the intimate connection each photographer had to capturing aspects and ideas of Mexico. 

MCASD is the San Diego/Tijuana region’s foremost forum devoted to contemporary art. At MCASD Downtown, experience contemporary art in a historic setting - the Jacobs Building, formerly the Santa Fe Depot baggage building. MCASD La Jolla is closed for a major renovation and expansion project that will quadruple current gallery space.
