Mexican Cultural Institute: Mexico Photo Exhibit
Thursday, June 30 through Saturday, October 22
Mexican Cultural Institute, 2829 16th Street, NW Washington, DC 20009

Mexico Through the Lens of National Geographic brings together, for the first time ever, a selection of 132 photographs of Mexico drawn from the National Geographic Society's archives in Washington, D.C. that together present a spellbinding vision of Mexico across time and space

With over 150 feature articles, no country has seen more coverage in National Geographic magazine than Mexico. This interest has created a stunning archive of visual imagery documenting the country's culture, history, and breathtaking physical beauty.

Curated by Juan García de Oteyza and Christina Elson, the exhibition is organized in seven sections that together provide a sense of Mexico's vibrant past and present, from chronicling the heroic explorations of men and women whose discoveries have led to breakthroughs in our understanding of Mexican geography and history to examining lively indigenous cultures, and from celebrating the country's natural splendor to uncovering its exciting metropolitan scene.

Mexico Through the Lens of National Geographic is co-organized by the Embassy of Mexico/Mexican Cultural Institute, the Mexican Tourism Board, and the National Geographic Society. The exhibition is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Dates: Thursday, June 30 through Saturday, October 22

Gallery Hours: 10 AM to 6 PM, Monday to Friday; 12 to 4 PM Saturday
