On view now through November 15, 2010 at Aperture Gallery, Paul Strand in Mexico is a historic exhibition comprised of over a hundred photographs by one of the great modern masters, including Strand’s vintage prints; stills from his classic film, Redes (The Wave; 1936); and previously unseen documents and ephemera related to Strand’s time in Mexico in 1932-34, and again in 1966. This unique and important photographic portrait of Mexico at a critical point in its history will open at Aperture Gallery on September 16, 2010, to coincide with the celebrations commemorating the bicentennial of Mexico’s Independence (1810) and the centennial of its Revolution (1910).

From Oct 15, 2010 through Oct 16, 2010 Aperture will present  symposiums bringing together a distinguished group of international scholars and practitioners from Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States. To find out more about the Paul Strand in Mexico symposiums click here.
