Mexico is the inspiration and location of a photography collection currently on display at JSMA through January 21, 2018
Blake Edwards of Eugene Weekly writes how in one exhibit placement, the current photographic exhibit at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art is relegated to potential obscurity, until the visitor peaks into the vibrant space. Just behind the Cuba Ocho installment is a handful of notebook-sized photos speaking to the brilliance of Paul Strand, Edward Weston, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo.
Edwards writes, “Local photo buffs needn’t fret. Bring your reading specs, get close and meet the show’s imperative—“Mirame Bien!” translated as “Take a good look at me!”—and you’ll be rewarded with a fresh impression of Mexico.”
“Mirame Bien!” will run at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art on the University of Oregon campus through January 21, 2018.
