Recuerdo: Latin American Photography at the AGO

Saturday, May 4, 3 pm
Edmond G. Odette Family Gallery

Join us to mark the opening of Recuerdo: Latin American Photography at the AGO featuring remarks from artists in attendance and exhibition curator Marina Dumont-Gauthier, AGO Curatorial Assistant. Remarks begin at 3 pm. 

Drawn from the AGO’s photography collection, Recuerdo – in Spanish meaning both “memory” and “I remember” – presents a cross-section of art from and of Latin America. Interweaving works by foundational Latin American photographers such as Manuel Álvarez Bravo and Graciela Iturbide, of artists working in the diaspora like Rafael Goldchain, and of Canadian image-makers who have produced some of their defining bodies of work there, including Barbara Astman and Michael Mitchell, the exhibition considers photography’s role in shaping memory and identity. Recuerdo: Latin American Photography at the AGO also offers an engaging account of the collecting done in that area since the creation of the Photography Department in 2000.
