La Frontera: the Cultural Impact of Mexican Migration

@ Museum of Contemporary Photography

600 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

Opening Thursday, October 7th, from 5PM - 7PM

On view through Wednesday, December 22nd

The idea for this exhibition originated when MoCP Director Rod Slemmons served as a member of the Mexican Community Roundtable of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. He realized that there were many layers and generations of migration and immigration present at the table, all with varying agendas and degrees of mutual understanding and tolerance. He felt that these multiple viewpoints were quite different from the simple, commonly held notions of immigration promulgated by the news media in the U.S.

Work by Michael Hyatt, Andy Kropa, Yoshua Okón, Heriberto Quiroz, Juan Pacheco, Antonio Perez, David Rochkind, Marcela Taboada and David Taylor.
