Drop-in Public Tour: Fixing Shadows: Contemporary Peruvian Photography, 1968-2015
Featuring more than 40 works from a transformational period of artistic growth, political turmoil, and social engagement in Peru, this exhibition looks back at the past five decades of Peruvian photography. Realized in collaboration with the university’s Harry Ransom Center, this exhibition will present photographs from their esteemed collection alongside new Blanton acquisitions. The exhibition further explores the influence of an important generation of photographers working in Peru during the 1970s and 1980s on the practices of a younger generation working since the 1990s. Fixing Shadows includes works by Fernando La Rosa, Mariella Agois, Carlos Domínguez, Milagros de la Torre, and Pablo Hare, among others.
