This exhibition presents half a century of Latin American photography from 1959 to 2016.
Featuring the work of over 70 photographers and artists, Urban Impulses showcases more than 200 images selected from the collection of Leticia and Stanislas Poniatowski.
This exhibition includes names such as Alberto Korda, Graciela Iturbide and Sergio Larrain, as well as lesser-known and emerging practitioners such as Eduardo Longoni and Beatriz Jaramillo.
From street documentary to collage, this exhibition charts a series of significant historical events that have marked the region: the Cuban revolution, military dictatorships in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Paraguay, along with mass social movements which have given way to repression.
The works in this exhibition offer an alternative to Western and North American histories of photography and express the contradictions of a region whose identity is a paradox forged in diversity.
