Washington, DC 20009


In what ways have artists from Mexico and the United States drawn insight from each other and how have these exchanges furthered their respective genres and informed our perceptions of each other? This autumn, the Mexican Cultural Institute will explore these questions in the first edition of a 3 part conference series Bilateral Relations: Undercurrents of Creativity. The series will shed light on how these interactions played out in the 20th century in the areas of painting, photography and music, demonstrating the dynamic and powerful ways in which culture has functioned as a creative catalyst and bridge between people, communities, and nations. In 2012, the second edition of this series will explore how these exchanges have continued in contemporary times and in the context of a globalized world.

Edward Weston and Manuel Álvarez Bravo
Thursday, November 3 @ 6:30pm
Free and open to the public

New York based expert Elizabeth Ferrer will discuss the fruitful creative and cultural exchanges between two pioneers of modern photography, the photographers Edward Weston and Manuel Álvarez Bravo.
