Artist's Talk: Alejandro Cartagena

Posted in News

Please join us for a talk and reception with photographer Alejandro Cartagena!

The event is on Monday, February 24 from 6:00-7:00 PM in Walsh 398.

Mr. Cartagena will discuss the images from “The Car Poolers” exhibition in the context of the “Suburbia Mexicana” project, which focuses on the complexity of rapid urbanization in 21st century Mexico. Throughout this body of work, Cartagena has directed his eye and camera towards the changing scenes around his home city of Monterrey, Mexico. In the photographs, he objectively records home ownership, urban sprawl, environmental degradation, and government policy. A reception will follow the talk in the Walsh lobby opposite the Spagnuolo Art Gallery.
