Book Description

30 Dec 2013
From 19 November 2013 to 6 April 2014, the Fondation Cartier pour lart contemporain will be showing America Latina 1960-2013, organized in collaboration with the Amparo Museum in Puebla (Mexico). The exhibition offers a new perspective on Latin American photography from 1960 to today, focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image. Bringing together more than seventy artists from eleven different countries, it shows the great diversity of photographic practices by presenting the work of documentary photographers as well as that of contemporary artists who appropriate the medium in different ways. This catalogue of the exhibition offers a vast panorama of the artistic production of the last fifty years. Including over 400 black-and-white and color reproductions, it explores the wealth of photographic work while shedding light on the historical and artistic context that spawned it. In addition to scholarly texts and artist bios, descriptions of works and a detailed timeline provide a deeper understanding of the visual languages specific to the continent. Chronicling the vital legacy of Latin American artists, the book shows the scope of their influence beyond their cultural and geographical territory.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This excellent book provides a sound analysis of the linkage between photography and the political, social and economic upheavals in Latin America since 1960. It includes a useful introductory essay which sets the context for the images by discussing the history of the continent over this period and then four sections examine the role of photography in recoring and providing insights into this history. There is also a very good bibliography, biographies of each artist and a summary timeline which is again helpful in context. I found the book extremely helpful in introducing me to Latin American photography, particularly when read in conjunction with the also excellent Urbes Mutantes.
