Celebration, Photographs by Graciela Iturbide
September 18 - November 1, 2008

Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibit of the iconic images of Graciela Iturbide, who has won the 2008 Hasselblad Award in Photography. This award, granted by the Hasselblad Foundation in Göteborg, Sweden, is widely held to be the most prestigious award in photography. As a tribute to Iturbide’s recent award from the Hasselblad Foundation, Throckmorton Fine Art shares images from throughout Iturbide’s productive and accomplished 30-plus years as a photographer. The strength of the images suggests why Graciela Iturbide has been called one of Mexico’s greatest living artists.

Heresies by Pedro Meyer

Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer’s Heresies — opening simultaneously in 60 museums worldwide — is a four-decade retrospective by one of the world’s most innovative image-makers. After an early start as a documentary photographer, Meyer began using digital technology in the early 1990’s to combine photographic elements from disparate times and places, thus arriving at a different or higher truth. Meyer’s contention that all photographs — digitally manipulated or not — are equally true and fictional has been labeled heretical among traditional documentary photographers, hence the title Heresies. At El Museo, images on view include musings on Latin American religious imagery, the lives of immigrants, and the 1968 Mexican student uprising, among other themes.

Admission: Free. El Museo’s galleries are currently closed. Due to the renovation underway, this exhibition will be presented in El Museo's third-floor Education Gallery. Heresies by Pedro Meyer is open only on Saturdays and can be seen by guided tour only, beginning October 11 through December 20, 2008. Tours in English start at 2:00 pm. Tours in Spanish start at 3:00 pm. Please meet museum educators five minutes before the tour at El Museo’s temporary entrance on the corner of 5th Avenue and 104th Street. Groups of 10 or more must make an advance reservation for a private tour by emailing
