El Punto Focal, Nuestra Comunidad Mexicana en Chicago


El Punto Focal, Nuestra Comunidad Mexicana en Chicago, Sept 28, 2007 – Jan 13, 2008      

Summary: Adalberto Barrios (1924-1976), Miguel Zuno (b.1938), and Antonio Pérez (b.1962) have photo documented the Mexican community in Chicago for over half a century.  Working independently, each of the photographers shares a perspective from within this fast growing community, one moment at a time. The focal point of this exhibition is the Mexican community, but the sequence of images that develops, broadens our understanding of a present-day city of immigrants.

Participating Artists: Adalberto Barrios, Miguel Zuno, and Antonio Pérez

Curator: Cesáreo Moreno

Organizing Institution: National Museum of Mexican Art

Displayed at: National Museum of Mexican Rubin & Paula Torres Gallery
