Beyond Here: The Judy and Sidney Zuber Collection of Latin American Photography
August 9, 2023–January 28, 2024
Beyond Here: The Judy and Sidney Zuber Collection of Latin American Photography features 34 works by Latin American photographers who foreground the figure’s natural capacity for storytelling and craft compelling narratives about the profound changes of the 20th century. This single-gallery exhibition includes work by Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Graciela Iturbide, Flor Garduño, Javier Silva Meinel, and Marta María Pérez Bravo, among others from 10 countries. These artists work across a range of photographic traditions, from studio photography and social documentation to formal modernism and more contemporary experimentations with process and narrative structure. Casting their sitters as agents of history, these photographers reflect each country’s unique history as well as themes that resonate across national boundaries: political revolution and civil unrest, the growth and decline of cities, Indigenous and rural traditions, and the ways these threads are woven together to shape ideas of modern national and personal identity. Drawn from the highly nuanced Spanish phrase “más allá,” the exhibition’s title gestures to the multiplicity of futures referenced in the photographs. The Judy and Sidney Zuber Collection of Latin American Photography is a promised gift to the Cantor Arts Center and will form the foundation of a growing collection of Latin American photography. This exhibition celebrates this transformative promised gift and the establishment of the Zuber Family Art Fund for collecting Latin American photographs at the Cantor.
This exhibition is organized by the Cantor Arts Center. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Zuber Family Art Fund.
