Luis Marquez in the “World of Tomorrow” Queens Museum of Art - Ongoing until March 06, 2011

Exhibition of over 80 photographs by Luis Márquez (1899-1978), the official photographer and art director of the Mexican Pavilion at the 1939-40 World’s Fair. His photographs grasp folckloric Mexico in styles raging from anthropological document to ironic theatrical tableau-vivant. The photographic negatives for these pictures were rediscovered by curators Itala Schmelz and Ernesto Peñaloza in the Luis Márquez photographic archive at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico City.

Of particular significance are five vintage prints that were originally exhibited at the Fair. All other photographs, which are digitally reproduced from negatives, will be on view in the United States for the first time. In an additional highlight, the exhibition features a selection of traditional Mexican folk costumes that Márquez included in the Mexican Pavilion. These costumes are currently under the care of the Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana in Mexico City.
