Members Night at the MFA Graciela Iturbide exhibit
14 March 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
BPPA members night at the Museum of Fine Arts exhibit of photographs by Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide, Thursday March 14, 6:30pm. The MFA has graciously arranged for tickets for BPPA members to come see the exhibit together, and for curator Kristen Gresh to speak about Iturbide, the photographs and the exhibit.
Attendees should meet at 6:15pm at the Huntington Avenue entrance to the MFA. BPPA Vice President Brian Snyder will be there with tickets and parking validation. Make sure you park in an MFA lot or garage to receive validation.
“The photographs of Graciela Iturbide not only bear witness to Mexican society but express an intense personal and poetic lyricism about her native country. One of the most influential photographers active in Latin America today, Iturbide captures everyday life and its cultures, rituals, and religions, while also raising questions about paradoxes and social injustice in Mexican society. Her photographs tell a visual story of Mexico since the late 1970s—a country in constant transition, defined by the coexistence of the historical and modern as a result of the culture’s rich amalgamation of cultures. For Iturbide, photography is a way of life and a way of seeing and understanding Mexico and its beauty, challenges, and contradictions.” -MFA, Boston
