This exhibition presents nearly 50 photographs by Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903–93), who played a critical role in Mexico’s modernist wave through her work as a photographer, educator, and curator. Picturing Mexico focuses on Álvarez Bravo’s personal artistic practice from the 1930s to the 1970s, when she traveled across the country producing iconic portraits of her fellow artists, lesser-known compositions that emphasize abstract form, pattern, and the play of light and shadow, and images of life in post-revolutionary Mexico. Her pictures of people at work and at leisure, of buildings new and old, and of a diverse array of landscapes bring to life an era of profound transformation, viewed from the perspective of one of Mexico’s pioneering female photographers. Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue that includes essays by Stephanie Weissberg and Karen Cordero Reiman. The catalogue is co-published by Yale University Press and available for purchase at the front desk and online at pulitzerarts.org/publications.
