Thursday, December 3 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Join author and curator Elizabeth Ferrer for a lecture on Mexican and Latinx photographers from USC Fisher's permanent collection.
Ferrer will discuss the museum's holdings of significant Mexican and Latinx photographers such as Graciela Iturbide, Laura Aguilar, Christina Fernandez, and more. Ferrer will also highlight her newest book, Latinx Photography in the United States: A Visual History. The publication is one of the first books to offer a parallel history of photography, one that no longer lies at the margins but plays a crucial role in imagining and creating a broader, more inclusive American visual history.
Elizabeth Ferrer is a Brooklyn-based curator and author specializing in contemporary art, and Mexican and Latino photography. She is also the Vice President of Contemporary Art at BRIC, a non-profit art and media organization based in Brooklyn. Ferrer has curated major exhibitions of modern and contemporary art for numerous venues in the United States and Mexico and has written and lectured extensively on topics related to her field.
Dial-in instructions will be emailed to participants the week of the event.
