Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico

"NMWA presents a landmark exhibition of evocative and groundbreaking photographs by celebrated artist Graciela Iturbide (b. 1942, Mexico City) from her prolific five-decade-long career. Iturbide’s signature high-contrast black-and-white images tell a visual story of Mexico since the late 1960s. More personal exploration than documentary photography, Iturbide’s work captures the rich tapestry of cultures, daily rituals, social inequalities, and coexistence of tradition and modernity across Mexican society. Approximately 140 photographs reveal the lifestyle of the Seri people living in the Sonoran Desert, exploitation of workers among the Mixtec of Oaxaca, the vital role of women in Zapotec communities, and the belongings of iconic artist Frida Kahlo. Iturbide’s empathetic approach to photography reflects her deep connection to her subjects and offers powerful insight into the beauty and complexities of Mexico’s cultural heritage. Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston."
