Tue, Jan 3, 1995 through Fri, Feb 17, 1995

Held in conjunction with conference on borders sponsored by WWU Canadian-American Studies and International Studies, the exhibition brings together a spectrum of artists’ approaches that show Mexican photography to be vital, multifaceted, and complex. Enough works by each artist are included to make strong individual statements in general. The works fall into two categories: those documenting people’s daily lives, rituals, and living situations, and those that combine the human body with symbolic objects to evoke profound beliefs from indigenous culture, Catholic religion and contemporary feminism.

Events and exhibitions are free and open to the public unless stated otherwise. Visitor information
